Ladin (Ladino in Italian, Ladin in Ladin, Ladinisch in German) is a Rhaetian language spoken in the Dolomite mountains in Italy, between the regions of Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto.

It presents connections with the Swiss Romansh and Friulian.

It is spoken in:

  • the province of Bolzano at
    • Ortisei (Ladin Urtiji, German St.Ulrich),
    • Santa Cristina (Ladin S. Crestina, German St.Christina),
    • Selva di Val Gardena (Ladin Slva, German Wolkenstein),
    • Badia (Ladin Badia, German Abteital),
    • Corvara in Badia (Ladin Curvara, German Kurfahr), and
    • Marebbe (Ladin Maro, German Enneberg);
  • the province of Trento in the Fassa Valley at the following seven municipalities:
    • Canazei (Ladin Cianacei),
    • Campitello (Ladin Ciampedl)
    • Mazzin (Ladin Mazin)
    • Pozza di Fassa (Ladin Poza).
    • Vigo di Fassa (Ladin Vich), and
    • Soraga (Ladin Soraga -or- Sorega)
    • Moena (Ladin Moena)

The Ladin spoken in the Fassa Valley (Ladin Val de Fascia, Italian Val di Fassa) is also subdivided into two further branches, "Cazt" (pronounced "catzet") is spoken in the northern half of the valley, whereas "Brach" (pronounced "brak"), is spoken in the southern half. For example, in Cazt, water is "ega" (as in Elephant), whereas in Brach it is "aga".

It is officially recognized in Italy and has some official rights in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige, while it does not have official status in the province of Belluno (Veneto region).
