К вопросу о преподавании italiano standard: норма и узус
The linguistic situation of modern Italy is characterized by presence of many dialects that often have an old literary tradition and are still vital. Regional dialects are constantly interacting with the national Italian language and even the standard Italian that the majority of Italians speak has some regional characteristics. Foreign students normally study the standard Italian used by mass media. However, studying this standard language they don't embrace the true Italian language reality. Therefore, it seems advisable to include in study program elements of country specific studies that give a wider perspective on the varieties of Italian.
