Speedy deletion nomination of Giuseppe De Luigi[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Giuseppe De Luigi requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. AlanS (talk) 12:19, 8 July 2014 (UTC)


  • The article was a copyright violation. Copyrighted text is not allowed in Wikipedia, as outlined in this policy. That applies even to pages created by you or your organisation, unless they state clearly and explicitly that the text is public domain. In this case, the owner of the web site has explicitly stated © 2013 Giuseppe De Luigi. All Rights Reserved. so we cannot use it. Text posted on Wikipedia must be free to distribute, amend and use for any purpose. There are ways to donate copyrighted text to Wikipedia, as described here; please note that simply asserting on the talk page that you are the owner of the copyright, or you have permission to use the text, isn't sufficient.
  • Also note that the only source was your website, which appears to be an unsupported personal essay. You did not provide independent verifiable sources to enable us to verify the facts and show that he meets the notability guidelines.

Hi, that solves the copyright issue, but the referencing needs improving. You are best to use in-line references so we can see what facts each is supporting. The format is <ref>[url description]</ref> with a {{reflist}} as the only item in a "References" section, that will display the list.
You still have only that website as a reference, it is not independent, so your article currently has no independent references, and will be deleted as an unreferenced biography, or as lacking notability, if you can't find some independent verification. I'll shortly post the deleted text here for you to work on outside the direct line of fire. I assume that your bibliography is further reading, but if the books are intended as referencing, they need to be placed in-line, as above, with the relevant page numbers and ISBNs Jimfbleak - talk to me? 10:16, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid that Wikipedia articles, in any language, aren't acceptable as references, since they can be self-edited. Just the language link in the sidebar. I've tidied the article a bit, needs more Wikilinks to other articles, I've added a couple like Mantua. You can get ISBN numbers by searching Amazon.
Images are uploaded here. Copyright at Commons is very strict. The image must either be your own or verifiably in the public domain. I'm not an expert on Italian copyright law, but I don't think an image from the 30s will be out of copyright. Since he is dead, you can use one image under a Wikipedia:Non-free content rationale if there is no PD image available Jimfbleak - talk to me? 12:21, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
