for the Italian side we have some cases of interest:
- Openpolis <http://openpolis.it> first: they work since 2007, absolutely
pioneers not only in Italy and EU (I think). What they do:
- tracking the *Parliament debate* before and after the vote of every
single law/framework with OpenParlamento <http://www.openparlamento.it/>
(even though data for Italian parliament are widely in open and linked
formats thanks to dati.camera.it and dati.senato.it)
- tracking *politician programmes*: by doing quizzes, you might
understand which party you could vote (here's an example per European
elections in 2014 <http://europee2014.voisietequi.it/>
- tracking every decision/change of politicians who jump to new
this post with stats
and their activities (who do more, who do less), check the live toplist
- Other team of interest is this one behind Pagella Politica
<https://pagellapolitica.it/>: they do an everyday-factchecking of
- You may take a look also to both Termometro Politico
<http://www.termometropolitico.it/> and YouTrend <http://www.youtrend.it/>:
they do similar, essentially to watch polls and results of elections.
