170mm x 240mm Rhaeto-Cisalpine (or Padanese) is a western Romance language, spoken in the Po valley (extended to include the Ligurian coast), which has developed in an independent fashion from Italian and is strictly related to French, Occitan, and Catalan. This subject has been relatively neglected in recent years, apart from a monumental work by Geoffrey Hull, dating back to 1982. This book aims at both offering a solid reference about, and at proposing a complete synthesis of this diasystem, including the Rhaeto-Romance languages and the so called Gallo-Italic ones, sometimes mistaken for Italian dialects, a conclusion probably driven by unscientific criteria inherited by the ’Italian Risorgimento’ political bias. In the formation of a general Rhaeto-Cisalpine koiné the following criteria have systematically been adopted: getting close to medieval forms, purging the language from Italian influence, adopting Galloroman models as decisive contributions, accepting widespread forms and generalising local ones. In particular Ladin forms (both Rhaetian and Dolomitic) have been deemed central, thus synthetic Padanese has been modelled mainly upon these ones.
