(ANSA) - VENICE, SEP 18 - "The Croatian Republic officially declared the Istro-Veneto language as intangible heritage, and this recognition means not only its protection but also its promotion and study in schools and universities. Furthermore, this decision will encourage its use and dissemination, so that it can continue to live, enriching the entire community." Roberto Ciambetti, President of the Regional Council of Veneto, commented on the news made official during the Istro-Venetian Festival in Buje, in Croatian Istria, "an ancient town that joined the domains of the Serenissima Republic as early as 1358 to remain faithfully linked to it until 1797. Thus, the ideal place to announce the recognition by the Croatian state of the value of Istro-Venetian - explained Ciambetti - I must thank the Croatian government and all those who have strived to achieve this goal. But, first, I want to thank the Union of Italians and the Region of Istria, which started the recognition process in 2016. (ANSA).
