Cooperation between Museo Galileo and Wikimedia Italia

Museo Galileo has been chosen, together with the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, with MUSE–Science Museum in Trento and with the Fondazione Mansutti in Milan, to welcome a "Wikipedian in Residence" for a three-month stay and in-house working. Museo Galileo was selected on the basis of the cultural and historical value of its collections and because of the rich documentary materials and iconography it owns. Such a collaboration represents a further step in the dialogue with Wikimedia Italia, which was started in 2009 and has its roots in the common interest for spreading culture and sharing scientific knowledge.
