Linking Portuguese culture to Wikidata

The efforts to connect Portuguese culture to Wikidata have sped up as ROSSIO Infrastructure makes its way into Wikidata. By aggregating content from multiple sources, from museums to other cultural institutions, ROSSIO Infrastructure provides open access to unique and diversified digital content in social sciences, arts, and humanities - in Portuguese and focusing on Portugal.
The brand-new platform has kickstarted the connection with Wikidata by adding Wikidata URIs to some entities on their ROSSIO's Agents Vocabulary (see D. Maria II National Theatre's record). As a further step towards building the bridge between both platforms, ROSSIO's URIs have been proposed as an external identifier on Wikidata. As ROSSIO grows, additional data will be added to Wikidata, connecting Portuguese heritage to the wonderful world of linked open data.
This work is underway as part of the Wikimedian residency held at NOVA FCSH in partnership with Wikimedia Portugal.
