CulturaItalia is the national platform for aggregating Italian Culture, managed by the Central Institute for the Union Catalogue of Italian Libraries and the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Activities and Tourism. It is a cross domain aggregator of more than 2.4 million items of metadata from 32 partners representing museums, libraries, archives and galleries. As the Italian national aggregator, it has played a role in Europeana, building cooperative networks and agreements and coordinating technical activities. CulturaItalia has an Open Data section, which also makes it possible to search a selected dataset, available in Linked Open Data Format.
