Abstract: We prove that, for $ 3 < m < n-1$, the Grassmannian of $ m$-dimensional subspaces of the space of skew-symmetric forms over a vector space of dimension $ n$ is birational to the Hilbert scheme of degeneracy loci of $ m$ global sections of $ \Omega _{\mathbb{P}^{n-1}}(2)$, the twisted cotangent bundle on $ \mathbb{P}^{n-1}$. For $ 3=m<n-1$ and $ n$ odd, this Grassmannian is proved to be birational to the set of Veronese surfaces parameterized by the Pfaffians of linear skew-symmetric matrices of order $ n$.
