Language/Dialect[edit]

Recently Il Garbagnolo, the dialect of Garbagna, has been revamped thanks to a theatrical company that performs every summer during the month of August. Directed by Fantone Nadia this small company has performed six plays all in dialect. The uniqueness of this dialect is the use of the partitive or Saxon genitive. The "U" in Garbagnolo means some or part of it. Neither the Tortonese or the Ligurian dialects have this grammatical aspect.
