A dicembre 2020, l'associazione conta 303 soci. Il bilancio 2019 comprende quasi 550 k€ raccolti da donazione e sponsorizzazioni.

What has been done so far (most links in Italian, sorry)
  • we participate round-the-year in local and national events and fairs, seminars, lectures in classrooms, etc. for promoting WMF projects in Italy [1]
  • we support and collaborate in nationwide petitions and campaigns [2]
  • we organized some online and offline initiatives [3] (Wiki@home (inglese), WikiAfrica, BWM, Biblioteca, Musica)
  • 3rd part publishers released a DVD-version of it:wp (more than 20,000 copies sold) and a handbook about Wikipedia and the Wikis
  • we have obtained the status of "associazione di promozione sociale" (social promotion association, a "charity" status in Italy); this grants tax deductibility on donations for the donors and other facilitations: we have also joined the WMF 2009 fundraising and 2010 "cinque per mille" campaign (sort of en:Eight per thousand for charities)
  • we have an office in Milan.
Best successes
Worst headache
  • the squatted domains www.wiki***.it
  • some legal complaints about the content of some Wikipedia articles (mainly bios of politicians), passed through to OTRS, as WMI is not the proper recipient, except one which went through a 5-years trial before WMI won in the Court.
