The Italian Wikipedia is the first project where people who use search will
find results added from Wikidata. As you may know, Wikidata knows has more
items with a label in a language than a Wikipedia has articles. With the

- a link to Commons categories for a subject
- a link to Wikipedia articles in other languages
- a link to the Wikidata item
- visualisation care of the "Reasonator"
When there are multiple items found in the search request, disambiguation
will be provided based on the statements available on the items. Obviously
as more labels are available in a language for statements, the experience
This is a really exciting new development and I want to thank Magnus and
Nemo for making it possible. I hope and expect that many Wikipedias will
follow the example of the Italian Wikipedia. Particularly the smaller
Wikipedias have much to gain from this new functionality.
