Emilian-Romagnol (emiliân-rumagnōl or längua emiglièna-rumagnôla), also known as Emiliano-Romagnolo, is an obsolete linguistic classification given to two distinct Gallo-Italic language languages: Emilian and Romagnol, in an attempt to make the political borders of the region called Emilia-Romagna coincide with cultural and linguistic borders[3]. This is because the region of Emilia-Romana is not an historical region like Lombardy or Veneto, but it's a mere a political construct invented for statistical purposes by the newly created Kingdom of Italy in 1861. The area from Modena to Piacenza was indeed historically considered to be part of Lombardy, while the area west of the Rhine was culturally linked with Romagna and the Papal States.

As a Gallo-Italic language, Emilian-Romagnol is most closely related to the Lombard, Piedmontese and Ligurian languages, all of which are spoken in neighboring provinces.
