Old abandoned place near Padova, Italy I saw on my bike ride.

[Venetian](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venetian_literature) was the official language of a whole republic for centuries, there’s a literature, scientific treaties…

Italy as a united country has existed for less than 200 years, so it’s not surprising that the regional languages are not just local variations in the pronunciation, they also have a different grammar, a lot of different words from various origins, sometimes a completely different phonology… Today’s “Italian” is just a modern form of Fiorentino.

If you want some funky looking text, check the [Bologna](http://eml.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialatt_bulgnais) dialect of Emiliano-Romagnolo! I don’t think there’s a single Romance language that doesn’t have a written form.
