On June 1, 2018 Museo Galileo and Wikimedia Italia signed a two-year agreement to carry out a GLAM project completely devoted to Leonardo, that is aimed at fostering a wider knowledge sharing on Da Vinci to celebrate the fifth centenary of his death (May 2, 2019).
The Museo Galileo will check and implement current Wikipedia articles and create new entries, thanks to the support of its staff and the researchers who collaborate with the institution. Moreover, relevant texts, videos and pictures will be shared with the Wikipedia community.
The Museo Galileo’s contribution will be focused on Leonardo’s scientific and technological interests, with special attention to his biography, his manuscripts, the places related to his life and work, the people he met or who played an important role in the posthumous destiny of his works. This project is a new step in the collaboration with Wikimedia Italia that began in 2009 and continued in 2016 with the Wikipedian in Residence.
