CONFERENCE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE; SALVATORE BANCHERI (Chair and Emilio Goggio Chair, Department of Italian Studies, University of Toronto)

Coltivando tranquilla, l'orribile varietà delle proprie superbie, la maggioranza sta come una malattia, come una sfortuna, come un'anestesia, come un'abitudine. Per chi viaggia in direzione ostinata e contraria col suo marchio speciale di speciale disperazione. (Fabrizio De Andrè)

La lingua aveva strati sovrapposti: era tutto un intarsio. C’era la gran divisione della lingua rustica e di quella paesana, e c’era inoltre tutta una gradazione di sfumature per contrade e per generazioni. Strambe linee di divisione tagliavano i quartieri, e fino i cortili, la stessa tavola a cui ci si sedeva a mangiare. (Luigi Meneghello)
