Abstract

The onset, the spread, and the outcome of COVID-19 at the beginning of 2020 in Italy has been characterized by multiple socio-territorial factors that can help to read the pandemic evolution from different points of views. This paper has a special focus on statistical significative aspects emerged in a multidisciplinary research of the University of Bergamo that has the aims to identify some factors of contemporary urban and mobile living, which favored the spread and propagation of COVID-19 in Italy. We describe the methods used and the results obtained to describe the severity of the impact of COVID-19 epidemic in the first months of its spread in Italy, and in particular in its epicenter, the Bergamo province. We aim also, on the one hand, to integrate and validate different information from various sources of territorial data, and, on the other hand, to provide a measure of the severity of the impact of COVID-19 epidemic on the territories of the area of Bergamo, Italy.
