Lingua e Stile was founded in 1966 by Luigi Heilmann and Ezio Raimondi as a meeting point between philosophy of language, linguistics and literary criticism. In 2002, in a very different cultural context, it launched a new biannual series dedicated to the history of the Italian language. The series encompasses various rigorous methodological approaches and presents studies, with a broad range of themes, dedicated to the history of language and dialects in Italy. It also provides a forum for research that touches upon other disciplines, including literary criticism, dialectology, sociolinguistics and philology.
