Editing marathon with ICAR
Our Wikipedian in Residence Marco Chemello launched a greatly participated one-week editing marathon using the CC contents from the Istituto Centrale per gli Archivi (ICAR). More than 120 articles were written, mainly about architects and captains of industry, embedding lots of beautiful historical photos. The results of the marathon were annouced the 21th of March, during the event Archives on Wikipedia at the National Central Library in Rome. The GLAM-ICAR project, lauched in september 2017 by ICAR and Wikimedia Italia, freed the texts of 1,5 million webpages. Thanks to these contents 390 articles were created or expanded on Italian Wikipedia till now, but it's only the beginning.
