This paper illustrates the problems that arose after the approval of a law in Italy (Act no. 482/1999) on the safeguarding and enhancement of traditional linguistic minorities by examining a number of specific examples. The law proved to be not only seriously insufficient, but even had negative repercussions, both with regard to the overall judgement expressed on Italy’s linguistic heritage seen as a cultural heritage, and with regard to the fact that in many situations the very principal of protection was distorted: from the refusal to finance a number of groups rightfully and meritoriously entitled to such funds to the financing of local realities which have very little if nothing to do with linguistic varieties. In general, “language policy” in Italy is negatively influenced by the confusion between “national minority” and “linguistic minority”, one of the major factors in accounting for the failure of initiatives attempting to help the linguistic minorities.

Act 77 of 1993 on the rights of national and ethnic minorities defines the rights of all minority groups in Hungary in compliance with EU legislation. The Roma minority is the only officially acknowledged ethnic minority of Hungary. It is difficult to provide an accurate picture on the situation of the Roma population because ethnic status is officially regarded as sensitive and therefore data collection is not permitted (Act 63 of 1992). The paper highlights the failures and the promising attempts of Hungary’s Roma integration policies, and the great efforts taken in this country and the difficulties of progress. It also demonstrates the importance of local initiatives and the contribution of civil organisations, the support which they would deserve, because without human solidarity and compassion no top down initiative can be rewarding.
