Roberta speaking Trigolese

Lombard is spoken by nearly four million people, primarily in the northern Italian regions of Lombardy and Piedmont, as well as in pockets of Switzerland. A literary language since at least the 13th century, Lombard experienced a decline in speakers towards the end of 20th century thanks in part to government marginalization. Since the dawn of the 21st century, however, a revivalist movement has flourished with Lombard being used in music and popular culture, even on Wikipedia.
