A Dictionary of the Venetian Language: Galepin Project

The term “Galepìn” is the Venetian term for “dictionary”.

The Academia considers that a modern Dictionary of the Venetian Language ‒ compiled according to the scientific criteria of the most recent linguistic science ‒ will serve as a milestone in the process of modernization of the language.

A Committee has already begun its meetings and work in order to move the first steps towards the development of this project, which will function as a launching facility for other important projects in the near future.

“Language is the most massive and inclusive art we know,
a mountainous and anonymous work of unconscious generations.”
