The availability of a huge amount of interconnected data in the so called Web of Data (WoD) paves the way to a new generation of applications able to exploit the information encoded in it. In this paper we present a model-based recommender system leveraging the datasets publicly available in the Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud as DBpedia and LinkedMDB. The proposed approach adapts support vector machine (SVM) to deal with RDF triples. We tested our system and showed its effectiveness by a comparison with different recommender systems techniques - both content-based and collaborative-filtering ones.
