Campanella - La Città del Sole, 1602
On December 6th, at the City Library of Trento, the digitization of manuscript BCT1-1538, the oldest example of The City of the Sun by Tommaso Campanella, was presented. The manuscript, uploaded to Commons and Wikisource thanks to the collaboration between the library and Wikimedia Italia, was entirely transcribed and formatted during the contest held in occasion of Wikisource thirteenth birthday.
In the 3rd issue, 2016 of AIB Studi the article Là ci darem la mano... Wikipedia e le biblioteche (in Italian) by Lucia Sardo was published. The paper dealt with the contribution of libraries and librarians to the GLAM project and Wikipedia. AIB Studi is an open-access journal on library and information science.
