Six winning projects out of 34 proposals received, for a total of 44,000 euros made available by Wikimedia Italy to encourage the production of free knowledge. Here the winners:
Parco archeologico di Sibari (The Archaeological Park): the Park of Sibari, under the Regional Directorate of Museums Calabria, will undertake to make reproductions of its collections available online. The images, uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and also catalogued on Wikidata, will be able to illustrate Wikipedia pages in different language editions, making the collection known worldwide and enriching the collaborative encyclopedia. In addition in collaboration with local associations, two exhibitions will be held (the first dedicated to the 10-year anniversary of the flooding of the area that also hosts the park's archaeological sites and the second will be dedicated to Wiki Loves Monuments Calabria, for which the museum will also be engaged in organizing in 2023).
Biblioteche civiche torinesi (Turin civic libraries): they will work on the enhancement of this important part of the city's historical and artistic heritage on Wikipedia and Wikidata. In addition 16 publications related to fashion events, 21 Automobile Show catalogs, and 10 publications related to the history of the library will also be digitized on Wikisource.
Biblioteca Lazzerini: their work will be dedicated to Prato and the documentation of the long history of the local textile industry. In addition to uploading to Wikimedia Commons the historical photographs of Prato's woolen mills between the 19th and 20th centuries, eleven Wikipedia entries will also be created: from one on the history of Prato's textile industry, to those dedicated to various historical figures who from the Middle Ages to the 20th century made the Prato area specialize in textiles.The project will also land on OpenStreetMap, which will be used to document the topographical history of Prato, integrating data from a 1918 map that attested to 134 textile mills that existed in the city, offering opportunities for study and comparison between past and present.
Museo etrusco romano di Trevignano Romano: the museum will work on the theme of accessibility and citizen participation in the enhancement and sharing of cultural heritage. It will do so by also involving the superintendence for the metropolitan area of Rome, the province of Viterbo and southern Etruria and the National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia. The Wikimedia and OpenStreetMap projects will be enriched with materials and data from the collections. In addition to the production of 3D images, videos in Italian sign language will also be made and made available to present the museum collections to everyone.
Museo civico insubrico di storia naturale: they will publish under a free license digital reproductions of 94 fossil specimens preserved in its collections and create or expand Wikipedia article of the sites from which the fossils come. The museum (in the province of Varese), is part of the Monte San Giorgio site, which straddles Italy and Switzerland and was recognized as a World Heritage Site in 2010. This area holds thousands of fossil specimens of inestimable scientific value, whose history is also presented at the museum in relation to the surrounding natural environment
Sistema museale di Ugento: the Cultural Heritage Network of the municipality of Ugento aims to connect and attract visitors and scholars to discover places in the Apulian town that have long been closed to the public. To bring citizens and visitors closer to the local artistic heritage, they'll create a digital photo catalog of the museum's archaeological collection on Wikimedia Commons, with photos of the tomb of the Messapian athlete, craters, fibulae, and many other artifacts. They also planned tours around the city to take photos and editathon, on which people will be able to contribute not only in Italian, but also in other languages.
