The Bernini Project

The Bernini Project aims to fully represent the Italian artist Gianlorenzo Bernini on Wikimedia

You can get involved. We are looking for students, researchers, teachers, photographers, translators, Wikipedians and anyone else interested in helping out. Wikipedia is free for anyone to edit.

At present, only a few of the works by Bernini are well documented, leaving visitors to Wikipedia in the dark about the full width of the artist’s achievements. But much more could be done to document Bernini’s achievements.

Wikipedia is the 6th most popular website in the world. Its methods are not flawless, but it’s difficult to deny its influence in informing and educating the 400m people who use the site. If you admire Bernini the artist, you want to make sure that people find out more information about him, and make sure that such information is reliable and can be trusted. The Bernini project is trying to make that happen.
