Ladin is spoken by about 70,000 people in northern Italy in the Dolomite mountains in Trentino, South Tyrol and Belluno provinces. It is part of the Rhaeto-Romance branch of Romance languages and is closely related to Fruilian and Romansh.
The Office for Ladin Language Planning (L Servisc à l'enciaria de laoré fora na forma de ladin) is developing a standard written form of Ladin (Ladin Dolomitan) for use across the Ladin-speaking region.
Since the 1990s a number of laws have been passed which provide protection for the Ladin language and culture, and the language has official recognition in Trentino and South Tyrol, though not in Belluno. Ladin is taught in schools and appears on some street signs.
