The Gallo-Italic of Basilicata (Italian: Gallo-italico di Basilicata) is a group of Gallo-Italic dialects, linguistic set of Romance languages, found in southern Italy, Basilicata,[1] that could date back to migrations from Northern Italy during the time of Normans.

These dialects are found in two areas: one near the regional capital of Potenza (in Tito, Picerno, Pignola and Vaglio Basilicata), and another on the Tyrrhenian coast (Trecchina, Rivello, Nemoli and San Costantino). [2]

Similar communities have survived in Sicily, known as "Gallo-italici di Sicilia".
