Ladin language and culture

The Ladin language is a Rhaeto-Romance language, which today is still spoken by about 30,000 native speakers.

This language, which has once been one of the most widespread throughout the alpine area, is today spoken by a language minority. In South Tyol it is still spoken in two valleys: Val Badia and Val Gardena.

Other areas where the Ladin language is in use are the Val di Fassa (province of Trentino), Livinallongo, Ampezzo (province of Belluno) as well as the Grigioni canton in Switzerland. In each area the ladin language is characterised by a local colour.
