Wikipedians at Tridentine Diocesan Museum; Alpine Botanical Garden Viote
On Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th Trento hosted a Wiki Weekend, with guidet tours and edit-a-thons at the Tridentine Diocesan Museum and at the Alpine Botanical Garden Viote. Wikimedia Foundation contributed to both the events by paying the lunch for the participants!
Tridentine Diocesan Museum
On Saturday morning on the occasion of the European Heritage Days twelve wikipedians from Trentino and other parts of Italy had a guided tour to the Early Christian Basilica of San Vigilio (Basilica paleocristiana di San Vigilio), an archeological site just under the present Trento Cathedral, and to the Museo Diocesano Tridentino, located in the old Palazzo Pretorio.
In the afternoon the event continued with the edit-a-thon in the Museum. The wikipedians created new articles about Basilica paleocristiana di San Vigilio and Palazzo Pretorio (that they had just visited), Santa Massenzia, goldsmith Giuseppe Ignazio Pruchmayer and painter Elia Naurizio.
The participants uploaded 491 photos on Wikimedia Commons and they were also able to partecipate to Wiki Loves Monuments! Thanks Sailko for the huge number!
Giardino Botanico Alpino Viote
On Sunday morning seven wikipedians visited the Alpine Botanical Garden Viote (Monte Bondone), now a territorial section of MUSE - Science Museum.
In the afternoon Giardino Botanico Alpino Viote hosted an edit-a-thon. Wikipedians created articles about Androsace sarmentosa, Polygonum affine, Gaillardia aristata, Anemone japonica, Gentiana lawrencei, Astilbe microphylla, Swertia perennis, Sedum middendorffianum and Rifugio Viote.
194 photos were upload to Wikimedia Commons, including some beautiful macros! The photos of the Astilbe microphylla and Gentiana lawrencei are the only ones we have on Commons so they have particular value!
