Aosta semi-autonomous region[edit]

The article curently states that Aosta is an autonomous region. This implies that it is an independent area. This is not the case. It has limited regional powers however is unambigiously still party of Italy. Italian military and police operate there and its elected politicians represent the area in the Italian parliament in Rome. It would be more accurate to describe the area as semi-autonomous. Does anyone have any opposition to this proposal? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:23, 10 December 2010 (UTC) What you have said is true, but the official designation is "Regione Autonoma"-- (talk) 05:35, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Info box[edit]

We should modify the Infobox_RegionIT to add a category for the official(s) languages. For instance in the Aosta Valley, is is French and Italian.

Original language[edit]

Hi it's not properly right to say that part of the valley is "francophone", because the original language spoken is Francoprovençal (not French).

What is an original language? I meen, the original language of the United States is certainally not English. Aaker 19:11, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Aosta province?[edit]

It seems from this document from the Italian Parliament that the Province of Aosta ceased to exist in 1945 ([1]). So I erased all references to the Province of Aosta.--Adriano 15:33, 9 July 2007 (UTC)


User:Galloramenu moved this to the rather awkward and cumbersome title of Valle d'Aosta/Vallée d'Aoste. This seemed to me to be contrary to our existing guidelines in respect of using English names where they exist, and that the practice of using names in multiple languages is poor style. Moreover, while there may be a case for a move, there is potentially more than one valid title it could be moved to, so I suggest the options are discussed here before anyone actually takes the initiative.
