|This is a WikiProject, an area for focused collaboration among Wikipedians.
This is a project to better organize information in the articles related to the Italian artist Gianlorenzo Bernini, his life and his work. The project is intended to complete or add new articles within its 'scope' described below. It is hoped that this project, and the discussions here, will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. For future reference, you can easily reach this page via the shortcut WP:Bernini.
To find out more about what we have been doing, see Scope and Articles below. If you would like to help, consider looking at the To do lists below, including clean-up tasks and new article opportunities below. You could also adopt an article. Feel free to add additional tasks or articles to these lists.
If you would like to join us, please add your name to the list of participants.
The scope of this project is:
- Gianlorenzo Bernini and members of his studio
- Works of Art (sculptures, fountains, buildings, paintings, drawing, ephemeral artworks) created, involving or designed by Bernini
- Sources of Bernini information or scholarship

|Class||Criteria||Reader's experience||Editing suggestions||Example|
|FA||The article has attained featured article status.
|Professional, outstanding, and thorough; a definitive source for encyclopedic information.||No further content additions should be necessary unless new information becomes available; further improvements to the prose quality are often possible.||
(as of August 2010)
|A||The article is well-organized and essentially complete, having been reviewed by impartial reviewers from a WikiProject, like military history, or elsewhere. Good article status is not a requirement for A-Class.
|Very useful to readers. A fairly complete treatment of the subject. A non-expert in the subject matter would typically find nothing wanting.||Expert knowledge may be needed to tweak the article, and style issues may need addressing. Peer review may help.||
(as of March 2010)
|GA||The article has attained good article status.
|Useful to nearly all readers, with no obvious problems; approaching (although not equalling) the quality of a professional encyclopedia.||Some editing by subject and style experts is helpful; comparison with an existing featured article on a similar topic may highlight areas where content is weak or missing.||
(as of November 2009)
|B||The article is mostly complete and without major issues, but requires some further work to reach good article standards.
|Readers are not left wanting, although the content may not be complete enough to satisfy a serious student or researcher.||A few aspects of content and style need to be addressed. Expert knowledge may be needed. The inclusion of supporting materials should also be considered if practical, and the article checked for general compliance with the Manual of Style and related style guidelines.||
(as of November 2009)
|C||The article is substantial, but is still missing important content or contains a lot of irrelevant material. The article should have references to reliable sources, but may still have significant issues or require substantial cleanup.
|Useful to a casual reader, but would not provide a complete picture for even a moderately detailed study.||Considerable editing is needed to close gaps in content and address cleanup issues.||
(as of May 2009)
|Start||An article that is developing, but which is quite incomplete and may require further reliable sources.
|Provides some meaningful content, but the majority of readers will need more.||Provision of references to reliable sources should be prioritised; the article will also need substantial improvements in content and organisation.||
(as of November 2006)
|Stub||A very basic description of the topic.
|Provides very little meaningful content; may be little more than a dictionary definition.||Any editing or additional material can be helpful. The provision of meaningful content should be a priority.||
(as of July 2009)
|FL||The article has attained featured list status.
|Professional standard; it comprehensively covers the defined scope, usually providing a complete set of items, and has annotations that provide useful and appropriate information about those items.||No further content additions should be necessary unless new information becomes available.||
(as of February 2009)
|List||Meets the criteria of a stand-alone list, which is an article that contains primarily a list, usually consisting of links to articles in a particular subject area.||There is no set format for a list, but its organization should be logical and useful to the reader.||Lists should be lists of live links to Wikipedia articles, appropriately named and organized.||
(as of June 2007)
To do lists
The following articles are candidates for expansion, re-organization, or clean-up:
- The articles on the operas are of widely varying quality.
New article opportunities
Feel free to add an article on any relevant topic, as long as it is encyclopedic, adopts a neutral point of view, and is verifiable. Normally the best way to ensure verifiability and neutrality is to cite sources, rather than relying on what you merely believe to be true. Some participants also believe that articles should be "notable".
Adopt an article
Would you like to adopt an article? This would involve doing the research, writing, and finding public domain images to create or improve an article. Just pick an article from one of the "To do" lists above and start editing (see "clean-up tasks" and "new article opportunities" above). Of course, anyone can edit any article, even if someone had "adopted" it. But the idea of adopting an article is to focus for a while on a particular article until you feel it is as completely researched and referenced, and as well-written as you can make it, with a view of building up the number of high quality articles relating to this project. When you are finished working on an adopted article, leave a message on the talk page to let the other members of the project know you are finished, and they can look it over.
