Abstract

The studies collected in the book cover, from different angles, about five centuries of linguistic history of Rome and its neighboring areas, for which the city was often a hegemonic center and an Italianization intermediary point. The attribute assigned in the title defining “ the other Rome” evokes emblematically the otherness of alternative writing paths, in many cases far from the literary dimension or the normal literacy channels and representative data, instead of those dynamisms between standard and deviation of which the linguistic history of the capital (and, more generally, the Italian culture) is rich. Various types of text, produced mostly by "ordinary people" (often women), were investigated in sociolinguistics key and valued in their many and varied range of intermediate achievements, in harmony with the gradual reformulation has recently involved the non-institutional studies of the writings. Letters, especially between family members, but also those addressed to authority people, or government documents and other kinds (such as plays or notes of protocol) are examined in a time span from the late fifteenth century to contemporary varieties, through the study of production in different times, but concentrated in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, being convinced that this period has a very crucial importance regarding the literacy processes and Italianization in Rome and its territory.
