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

Clean-up tasks[edit]

The following articles are candidates for expansion, re-organization, or clean-up:

Major articles[edit]

  • The articles on the operas are of widely varying quality.

New article opportunities[edit]

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[edit]

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.
