      As mentioned above, this process is attested in some varieties of the dialects of north-western Italy—the so called 'Gallo-Italic' dialects (Piedmontese, Lombard, Ligurian, Emilian, Romagnolo). ]

      Dialectologists distinguish Gallo-Italic dialects (Piedmontese, Ligurian, Lombard, Emilian-Romagnol) from Venetian (Venetian, Trentino). In central Italy there are several Tuscan and central dialects (Umbrian, Marchigian, Roman) and southern dialects (Campanian, Abruzzese, Molisan, Calabrese, Pulian, Lucanian, and Sicilian). To these must be added the Ladino dialect spoken in Friuli (called Friulano in Italian or—in dialect—Furlans).
