Free pictures and music
In May we covered four events for obtaining pictures and upload them to Wikimedia Commons under a free license. They were the following events: concerts of Abraham Mateo and Andrés Calamaro, the Rally Eurocidade and the Rally of Portugal. Also we recorded 7 more audios of classical music at the Museum of Romanticism, in Madrid. The works are from Claude Debussy and they were performed by the pianist Patrizia Prati.
