Sabbatical Report 2019: Faeto

I began with a Francoprovençal-focused month (July) in Italy. Highlights included returning to Faeto to spend a few weeks with old friends and hone my fieldwork skills.

It was fantastic to get back to Faeto after such a long absence. Craig and I worked on our language skills, I reconnected with old friends, and Craig remembered how much he loves small towns. Lots of time to catch up with friends and enjoy the views.

While we were in Faeto, a bunch of us were interviewed about using, preserving and revitalizing Faetar, for Radio Svizzera. Listen to some Faetar!

Faeto: 20 years later

Here I am with Maria-Antonietta, the person who has done the most to help me learn Faetar and collect great data in Faeto.

Maria-Antonietta has been writing in and about Faetar recently, too.

Maria-Antonietta and Vito made sure we didn't starve!
