Welcome to the Wikibook of the Pizzonese dialect. Pizzonese is a Western Abruzzese variant of Neapolitan with origins in N. Molise. It was widely spoken in the renowned village of Pizzone, but is now spoken by a few several hundred Pizzonesi emigrants (which is a lot by demographic standards). Pizzone itself is the Molisean place with the highest number (or proportion) of colonizers and emigrants acorss the world. Pizzonese is related to many other Western Abruzzese dialects across northern Isernia and the southeastern fringes of Ciociara, Settefratese being a good example.
