An orthography to strengthen the Venetian language

Venetian: an International Language

In its written form the Venetian language dates back to the late 12th century. It has originated in the Veneto region, where nowadays it counts almost 5 million speakers.

Millions of people also speak Venetian in southern Brazil and other smaller communities around the World.

The Academia works to rebuild the international prestige of the Venetian Language and as nowadays it is spoken by millions of people in different continents, we can undoubtedly say that it already holds considerable chances to become (again) an international language.

“In quelo tenpo che misier Balduino era inperador de Chostantinopoli, che fo ani MCCL, misier Nichuola Pollo, che fo pare de Marcho, e misier Mafio Pollo, fradelo de misier Nicollò, valenti e savii e avezuti, se partìno de Veniexia e andò chon suo’ merchadantie in la zità de Chostantinopoli. E llì àveno chonseglio de dover andar plui innanzi, et per sua utilitate et per sue mercadantie.”
