About Us

The Opera del Vocabolario Italiano (OVI) is the institute of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) responsible for the development of the Historical Dictionary of the Italian language. The OVI Insitute is located in Florence, at the Accademia della Crusca.

The OVI is a founding member of the European Federation of National Language Institutions (EFNIL), of the Center for Historical and Theoretical Linguistics: Italian, European Languages, Oriental Languages (CLIEO), and of the Italian node of the European Research Infrastructure Consortium DARIAH-ERIC (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) – DARIAH-IT.

At present, the OVI’s activities are centered on the development and online publication of the Tesoro della Lingua Italiana delle Origini (TLIO) – the first historical dictionary of early Italian, which is also the first section of the Historical Dictionary of the Italian language – and of the textual corpus of early Italian. It also develops and provides scholars with advanced lexicographic software.

It has collaborative relationships with Italian and foreign universities and colleges, research centers, public and private bodies, and publishing houses for research and training activities on Italian language and texts.
