Introduction / History

The Bergamasco people only live in Italy. They speak Lombard, the language of a very powerful tribe during the Middle Ages. They live in the northern Italian province of Bergamo.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Bergamasco people live just like their Italian neighbors holding the same jobs and living the same lifestyles. They do, however, have their own language, which they speak at home. And they maintain a sense of pride in their distinction as a people.

What Are Their Beliefs?

The Bergamasco are Roman Catholic like most others in Italy.

What Are Their Needs?

They need to put Jesus Christ first in their lives, far above church traditions.

Prayer Points
