In this project, we propose the analysis of the World Trade Web as a multilayer network. We will consider the import-export relationships of each product as a single layer and verify which is the most suitable way to connect the layers. Methods for layer reduction will be considered in order to obtain a more compact, but still a representative organization of the WTW. (AU)
