I seem to have missed Luisa's original message. Anyway, a convenient
update on the status of languages under the Charter is the front page
of the European Bureau for Lesser Used Languages' CONTACT BULLETIN.

I have just received the December 2000 issue, and according to this,
Italy has signed the charter, but not ratified it.

They give a web site for further details
but I have not been able to access it.

EBLUL's home-page is http://www.eblul.org
but does not seem to have Contact Bulletin on line.
