Wiki Loves Monuments Italy in the world
Wiki Loves Monuments Italy has been a wonderful journey and still is: we
started with a handful of "freed" monuments and we ended up with two
pictures classified in the international contest! The image of the Teatro
Comunale di Ferrara by Andrea Parisi came fifth, while the photo of the
Baptistery of San Pietro di Asti was ranked fifteenth. More info on the blog
of Wiki Loves Monuments
The great satisfaction of Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 motivates us to design
a competition even more exciting for next year. But we still need your
support! This time you can help us without spending a dime, but simply by
voting: we have passed the first stage of the contest "Che fare" ("What To
Do"), and now we are trying to pass at the third stage. The winner of the
contest will receive a prize of €100,000. Go to Che fare!
vote for the project no. 31!
