Hi all,
the new bulletin from Wikimedia Italia (#43) is available.
This time we write about participation of Wikimedia Italia to a new Italian
initiative for high school students, and the videos of the presentation of
our members at Wikimania 2012. Moreover, a doctoral dissertation about the
use of Wikipedia as a "collective memory" is reviewed.

As usual a link has been added to meta, at

Official bulletin from Wikimedia Italia Association.


Happy New Year to all our volunteers, members and donors!
 Wikimedia Italia attends the presentation of Dai una voce alla democrazia

*Dai una voce alla democrazia* (*Give voice to democracy*) is born. The
initiative is a digital literacy project developed in the context of 2013
edition of Biennale Democrazia <http://biennaledemocrazia.it/>, with the
collaboration of Nexa Center, Wikimedia Italy and Centro Servizi Piemonte;
it is aimed at students who, together with their teachers, are invited to
choose an article of Wikipedia related to the concepts of utopia,
participation and civil society, and to develop it. The staff of Wikimedia
Italia will take part in the public presentation of the initiative, which
will be held on Thursday, January 17, 2013 from 14:30 to 17:30 at Avogadro
Institute in Turin. In addition, they will support the classes throughout
the creation process. Participation to the initiative is still open: the
classes can register to the project until 31 January 2013.
