Dialèt Bresà, Bresciano, a non-standard variety of Italo-Romance, the mother tongue of my parents and grandparents, my native dialect.
In the words of the Bresciano poet Angelo Canossi (1862-1943)
For our dialect, of ö and ü so full
that it feels like crunching stones and spitting
that it spoils the sight of those who read it,
has never said calt for cold, nor bröt for bread;
of all the dialects of Italy the worst perhaps,
but it’s an Italian tongue nevertheless.
