Data Buffet: Mafia knows no borders, and reporters must be ahead of the game if they want to cover it. Mafia Files is first digital archive of court documents focused on organised crime cases involving the mafia. It is meant to be a tool for reporters and researchers who need to store documents and, most importantly, share information about cases and develop cross-border investigations. It is initiated and made by Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI) and out in beta. Sara Menafra, the coordinator of the project, shows the possibilities and encourages to use it for more collaborative journalism and cross-border investigations.
