Share your Knowledge
Share Your Knowledge: art and creativity in common
Every institution owns, produces and commissions the realization of cultural resources: publications, researches, databases, music, artworks, essays, documentations, plays, videos, images, press releases, biographies of artists and authors, teaching materials. These contents are one of the most important resources of cultural institutions.
By joining the “Share your knowledge” project, such institutions have the chance to spread and better exploit their own resources through Wikipedia and the “Creative Commons” application (Creative Commons is an American non-profit organization founded in 2001 that assists authors and creators who want to voluntarily share their work, by providing free copyright licenses and tools, since December 16, 2002).
Fondazione Cariplo has taken part to the “Share Your Knowledge” project by making available its art collection on Wikipedia.
All information about our works of art and the biographies of artists find in Wikipedia a privileged multilingual channel thanks to its accessibility and visibility.
