Italian: Bergamasco...
"Although standard literary Italian is in use throughout Italy, the
Italian language is spoken in numerous regional dialects, some of
them so divergent as to be mutually unintelligible.   These dialects
can be classified generally: the Central Italian dialects of Latium
and Umbria, including the Roman and Florentine standard
literary usage; the Southern dialects (spoken south of Rome) -
Calabrian, Corsican, Neopolitan, Sicilian, etc.; and the Gallo-
Italian, or Northern dialects - Bergamasco, Bolognese, Genoese,
Milanese, Piedmontese, Romagnuolo, Venetian, etc.   The
Sardinian and Frioulan languages are also considered by some to
be Italian dialects.

It must be remembered that the translations in the following
sections were prepared a century ago for Louis-Lucien Bonaparte
(except for Piedmontese), and for purely philological reasons (see
note to No. 23), and that they represent the usage of the mid-
19th century.   Dialectal usage is usually more pronounced in rural
areas.

The Bergamasco dialect of Italian is spoken around Bergamo, in
northern Italy."
