Like Marina’s Bergamasco accented Italian or Giana’s sons’ interspersing 30 Bergamasco in Use: The Feel of Everyday Speaking of Bergamasco and Italian phrases as they tried to calm their mother down, it is clear that both languages were being utilized at the same time (if not always in the same breath). This is one reason why when Bergamaschi travel outside of Bergamo, other Italians recognize them as Bergamaschi as soon as they open their mouths to speak: they sound like where they come from.

In spite of how bivalent so much speech was in Bergamo, when most people talked about language in Bergamo they maintained that speaking Italian and Bergamasco together was undesirable. Speakers understood Italian and Bergamasco to be two distinct codes, and mixing them up was a sign that one did not know any better. The many forms of bivalent speech were usually described in one of two ways: as “bad” Italian (when Bergamasco interfered2), or as “inauthentic” Bergamasco (when Italian interfered).
