Hi Cristiano,

as Steffen already said, using the Named Graph data model together with 
SPARQL is a  practical and well tested way for doing this.

Reification is considered dead by most people working on Semantic Web-based 
data integration. I think the only people still thinking about using 
reification are the new OWL working group and I hope that they will also 
realize at some point that they are running into problems with this.

If you need a vocabulary for representing meta-information about graphs, one 
option is to use the Semantic Web Publishing vocabulary. A framework that 
might be interesting for you with regards to trust is the WIQA Web 
Information Quality Assessment framework, which employs the Named Graphs 
data model and allows you to formulate various information filtering 
policies using a policy language that is based on SPARQL.
