What were the effects of the travel-restricting containment measures adopted in response to the Covid-19 emergency? How much did mobility vary from region to region and from month to month?

These are just some of the questions that the digital tool City Analytics - Mobility Map, made available free of charge by Enel X and HERE Technologies, has been answering since the very first months of the Covid-19 health emergency.

Data collected in 2020 has provided important elements for the analysis of macro-variations at national and regional levels. At the national level, mobility decreased dramatically during the periods in which government decrees applying strict limits to people’s movements were in force. In particular, the period that saw the sharpest fall was between March and May 2020 during the national lockdown; April was the month with the greatest decrease in mobility, with an average reduction of 57%. The regions with the most evident reductions were Valle d’Aosta and Campania, while Friuli-Venezia Giulia registered the smallest drop.
