What is it?
DBpedia Italian is an open and collaborative project for the extraction and reuse of semantically structured information of the Italian version of Wikipedia. The project aims to enable the usability of the Wikipedia information within external software and applications. DBpedia Italian allows to execute complex queries on Wikipedia contents and to link the extracted data to other Linked Data datasets. We hope that this project will allow the reuse of the extraordinary Wikipedia knowledge base so to foster developers creativity in creating novel navigation and linking solutions meant to improve Wikipedia itself. The today version of Wikipedia is the central node of the Linked Open Data Cloud and constitutes a relevant reference for the dataset interlinking. In the same way, the Italian version could be used as core of the Italian Linked Open Data Cloud initiative.
