Central italian[1][2][3][4]

Central Italian (italiano centrale or mediano) is a group of Italo-Dalmatian Romance dialects spoken in central Italy in Lazio, Umbria, central Marche, the far south of Tuscany, and a small part of Abruzzo. The differences between these dialects are slight. They are closely related to Tuscan and all are mutually intelligible with each other as well as with Standard Italian. They are the Italian dialects not affected by substrata.[citation needed]
