== Archaeowiki Press Release ==
Thursday, November 7th a press conference of the project [
http://www.archeowiki.it Archeowiki. New archaeologist in Lombardia. Real
and virtual paths] was held in Milan, in the picturesque setting of the
Tiepolo room at the headquarters of the Cariplo Foundation (co-financing
organization ). Faced with a large and varied audience Dario Bolis
(''Director of Communications and External Relations in Cariplo''), Frieda
Brioschi (''President of Wikimedia Italia''), Grazia Facchinetti
(''Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Lombardy'') and Filippo
Del Corno (''City Councillor for Culture of the Municipality of Milan'')
presented the initiative. The public showed great interest in Archaeowiki:
both for its values​​, including the sharing of knowledge as an engine of
growth, and for its main purpose, namely attracting new users to
archeology, especially young students, elderly people and the disabled. It
was much appreciated, also, the fact that the project leans towards the
less-known archaeological museums of Lombardy.

Following the meeting, several sites and online newspapers reported the
news: [http://milano.repubblica.it/dettaglio-news/milano-14:57/11890 La
Repubblica], [
of Cultural Heritage and Activities], [
City of Milan].

A few places for schools are still available. If you are interested,

== Award ceremony for Wiki Loves Monuments Italia ==
The time is finally over: we are ready to announce the winners of [
http://www.wikilovesmonuments.it/ Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 Italia]. The
appointment is for '''Saturday, November 23''', at '''17:00''' at the
'''Libreria Hoepli''' in Milano (Via Hoepli 5). See you there!

== WMI supports the creation of the Italian chapter of  OpenStreetMap
Foundation ==
The Italian community of
[http://blog.openstreetmap.it/'''OpenStreetMap'''] is in turmoil:
since long it is considering to  to
create in our country to a chapter of the [
http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Main_Page OSM Foundation] and during the
last edition of [http://conf.openstreetmap.it/ OSMit], the Conference of
the Italian community of OpenStreetMap, the idea of letting WMI become the
Italian chapter of OSM Foundation was debated. The proposal was liked by
members of Wikimedia Italy, so today all those who wish to contribute to
the creation of '''OpenStreetMap Italia''' are called to arms: you can just
subscribe to Wikimedia Italia, indicating as reason "to build the Italian
OSM chapter." Our association, achieved 10 new members who sign with this
purpose, will begin to define themselves also as the "Working Group for the
Italian OSM chapter." When 25 users are reached, a request to OSM
Foundation will be made to become the official Italian chapter. Even
someone who is already a member can help achieve the quota: it's enough to
make at least fifty changes on OpenStreetMap assets, and have at least
three months of contributions in this regard. Do not delay! sign up to
participate actively in the dissemination of OSM in Italy!

== Presentation of Sestopedia ==
Friday, November 8, at the Mage in Sesto San Giovanni, the project
Sestopedia was officially presented: Wikimedia Italy was represented by
[[:it:Utente:.mau.|.mau.]]. Sestopedia, the brainchild of director and
screenwriter Giusi Castelli and implemented by the non-profit organization
Associazione Lavoro e Integrazione (Association for Employment and
Integration), is based on what has been done in the Welsh town of [
http://wiki.wikimedia.it/wiki/MonmouthpediA Monmouth], which was completely
"wikipedized" with the participation of their citizens. Sesto San Giovanni,
which made a proposal to UNESCO to be insertes as World Heritage Site for
its rich heritage of industrial architecture, would like to take this
initiative, with the help of Wikimedia Italia for the part of computer
