I thought this ending made the whole narration a sarcastic tale? Of
course you can't reach the soprintendenza, but most importantly the
soprintendenza can't reach you.
Your example rather proves the value of uploading such images to
Commons: whatever language the shipwrecked person speaks or downloaded
Wikipedia in (from kiwix.org in ZIM format I suppose?), the backup will
easily include all MiBAC-authorised photos because
1) Italians can upload them in the first place without breaking the law,
2) Commons can host them because they're free,
3) all Wikipedias can use them directly rather than hoping for them to
be somewhere in the web or on it.wiki and uploading them locally.
