Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, where Marco Chemello is working as Wikipedian in residence, freed the contents of thier whole website making them avalibable for all the wikimedians and the wider community. The Academy of Sciences of Turin, founded in 1757, is one of the most ancient and important scientific academies in Italy already active, and its contents are therefore most reliable sources. The GLAM project begun in March 2020, involving in the training sessions also members of other relevant istitutions in Turin.

Niccolò "Jaqen" Caranti and Adert kicked off a new collaboration between Wikimedia Italia and the Museo Civico di Modena; the collaboration will last till the end of September and produce new contents on Italian Wikipedia, Wikisource and Wikimedia Commons.
As a start the Wikipedians in Residence are teaching about Wikimedia projects to the staff of the museums, that is starting to contribute with new articles and images. Some events will also be organised (online and, if it will be possible, also offline). More information on the project page (in Italian).
