> Dear all,
> on April 7th, Wikimedia Italia held its general assembly, where a new
> board has been elected. It is composed as follows:
> * Lorenzo Losa, President
> * Valerio Perticone, Vice-president
> * Carlo Benini, Secretary
> * Saverio G. Malatesta, Treasurer
> * Maurizio Napolitano
> I wish to thank Federico Leva, Giuseppe Profiti and Paola Liliana
> Buttiglione, who ended their term, for their invaluable work in the board.
> The general assembly drew a very good participation, with 89 voting
> members (the most participated general assembly in the last ten years!),
> and unanimously approved the 2017 annual report (currently in Italian only;
> an English version is planned).
> <>
> A few highlights from the 2017 report:
> * Two new WIRs have started working at the Ministry of Culture (ICAR and
> ICBSA). Some portals of the central archives administration have already
> adopted the CC-BY-SA-4.0 license as well as the public domain charter! For
> more links see:
> <>
> * We got more than 3.000 researchers to archive their articles in green
> open access (in just two months!):
> <
> rs-make-over-3000-articles-green-open-access-via-dissemin/>
> * OpenStreetMap activities are strengthening, reaching more than double
> the people we expected.
> From the structural point of view, since July 2017, after almost a year of
> intense discussions with members and staff, we have started implementing
> changes while going towards a reduced workload for the board. We have
> mutually agreed to part ways with our former ED. Since then, three new
> employees have started working with us: Giovanna Ranci, for the education
> program; Marta Arosio, for GLAM partnerships; Teresa Scorza, for
> administration and bookkeeping.
> Looking forward, the 2018 budget and annual plan, written by 37 members
> and employees together, is increasing the support for Wikimedia volunteers
> (financially and otherwise), while reducing expenses for salaries and
> administrative services.
