Best in Photos: "Wiki Loves Monuments Italia" Winners

Calling all citizens to capture and share – in pictures - Italy’s cultural and artistic heritage. This is the premise behind the “Wiki Loves Monuments Italia” contest, which has recently selected the ten photographs that will take part in the international round with all participating countries to be held in mid-November.

Below are the ten photographs selected for Italy from more than 12,000 images. The top spot was awarded to Emilia-Romagna, with a photo showing Casone Serilla, a former fishing station in the Valleys of Comacchio, shot by Vanni Lazzari.

Organized by Wikimedia, “Wiki Loves Monuments” is described as an international photo contest for monuments. All the photographs participating in the contest are posted on Wikimedia Commons, the largest media database of Wikipedia.
