Re: ArCo: a Knowledge Graph of Italian Cultural Heritage

Hi Valentina,

nice work! I assume you are aware of the German Digital Library [1] 
which contains 24,482,105 "objects"? They have some of the links already 
you wish to link to. Might be an idea to link to them as well.

I will forward your mail to them in case they have some resources free 
to create links to your knowledge graph!

A sample record to my favorite Italian Philosopher:

Best regards,

> Some details about ArCo:
> ArCo ontologies model a plethora of types of cultural properties such as archeological objects, numismatic objects, artistic heritage, musical instruments, photographs, technological heritage, etc., to name a few. For these objects it allows to capture details such as elements affixed on cultural properties (e.g. coat of arms), the coin issuance of a numismatic property, copies, forgeries and other works related to a cultural property, specific surveys (such as a paleopathology diagnosis on an anthropological material), cadastral information, historical locations, the communication medium (e.g. kinesic, instrumental) of intangible demo-ethno-anthropological heritage, etc.
> ArCo reuses and is aligned to CIDOC-CRM, EDM, Cultural-ON, OntoPiA, and other alignments and linking are planned for the future (e.g.: BIBFRAME, EAC-CPF, DBpedia, Wikidata, Getty Vocabularies).
> ArCo’s starting point is the General Catalogue of Cultural Heritage [6], a database collecting ~800.000 catalogue records of Italian cultural heritage entities.
> This enormous amount of data is now available as a LOD knowledge graph!
