Discover the beautiful Italian cultural heritage thanks to the exhibition of the pictures photographed for Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects by the participants of the contest Wiki Loves Monuments Italia 2015.

Through 30 pictures you will admire the best selection of the monuments that decided to participate at the edition 2015 of the Italian section of Wiki Loves Monuments (remember that in Italy there is no Freedom of panorama).


The first 10 photos are the winners of the national contest.
The ten national winners participated also at the international contest, and the Italian 3rd place (File:La Sacra ammantata dalla neve.jpg) was classified 2nd at the international WLM. This is the best placement in the history of WLM for an Italian picture!
