This is the first computational analysis of the corpus of Italian bulletins of the first and second world war. Bulletins are annotated automatically with different types of information, such as simple and multi-word terms, named entities, events, their participants, time and georeferenced locations.
The annotated texts and extracted information can be explored with a dedicated Web interface, allowing for multidimensional access and explorations of historical events through space and time.
