Papers presented at the conference organized on April 19, 2008 by the Angelini Foundation — Center for the Study of Mountain Areas, The municipality of Cencenighe Agordino, the Department of Linguistics at the University of Padua, and the Comunità Montana Agordina with support of EIM. The conference was dedicated, to the glottologist Giovanni Battista Pellegrini of Agordino, one year after his death. Pellegrini dedicated a large part of his linguistic research to the Bellunese Dolomites, encompassing also the Trentino, Alto Adige, and Friuli Dolomites, and the greater Alpine arc. This volume contains testaments from several of his collaborators and from noted linguistic scholars from Italy and abroad, with particular reference to Pellegrini’s contributions to work on place names, to the Ladin language, and to other linguistic fields.
