    For me the easiest to understand (80-90%) are Lombard (halfway between Italian and French) and Talian (relatively close to standard Italian).

    Istriot is easy for everyday terms, but the poetry is harder.

    Emilian sounds a bit like a Provençal dialect but with an odd pronunciation. I understand about 30%.

    Friulian is surprisingly difficult. I understand only 10% of it.

    The Emilian speaker has a very odd voice.

    Ligurian starts here at 12 min followed by Emilian. Lombard starts at 20 min.

    I've always said I didn't have all that much trouble with the Provencal poets because I grew up hearing Ligurian and Emilian.

    The dialect of Genova. A lot of Italians think it's impenetrable, maybe Emilian as well, but then I don't have an easy time with southern Italian dialects either. The movie about the Camorra was released in Italy with Italian subtitles. Similarly, when Godfather II came out, I had to rely on the English subtitles. :)

    The dialect of the area where I was born: part of Toscana since the time of the Medici but the dialect has been described as Emilian influenced by Ligurian and Tuscan.

    The important linguist Ascoli told that these languages are linked with friulian:





    I don't know if this theory is now confirmed.

    I like also this romance language from Balkans:
