    some romantic connection we have here ?
    I don’t think it’s italian but it’s close to it to some extent.
    Romanian? ….. or ….. Sicilian?

  2. Halabund says:

    It’s not Romanian. I think it’s something more closely related to Italian.

  3. Ben L. says:

    I heard a lot of ‘amore’- Sicilian?

  4. Anders says:

    Italian. But what dialect I have no idea.

  5. Harris Engelmann says:

    hmmmmm…. im gonna guess Sardinian

  6. Zachary says:

    I don’t know enough about romanian, but I doubt it’s italian, maybe somewhere close. I’m gonna just guess… hungarian?

  7. John C says:

    Let’s say its Moldovan?

  8. Podolsky says:

    Frioulian?

  9. Guido R. says:

    I think it’s the Italian dialect of Naples.

  10. Simon says:

    Guido got it – it is in the Neapolitan dialect. The song is called Napoli e bello e stinco (Naples is lovely) and the recording comes from this site.

    You can find more songs in Neapolitan dialect here.

  11. James says:

    the voice sounds quite slavonic, but that may just be the recording. It´s italian, but not standard italian. Unless it is something tricksy like a rived Ligurian…

    some Italian dialect is my guess
