Wikigita in Cernobbio and Como

Saturday, 24th September, take part to the WikiGita in Cernobbio and Como.

The WikiGitas, organized by Wikimedia, are events that join the identification of the Italian cultural heritage with the creation and the sharing of the free knowledge.
A WikiGita is a photographic excursion during which you must immortalize a lot of monuments to then enter the Wiki Loves Monuments competition.
