The ICL magazine, founded by Luigi Heilmann in 1977, is now published annually, giving a voice to the initiatives and research promoted by the Institute itself, including contributions made by scholars and specialists who identify with an in-depth interdisciplinary scientific programme along with a much broader distribution.
It contains studies, events and features concerning various aspects of Alpine and Ladin culture, particularly: history, linguistics, folklore, arte, environment and social dynamics. From time to time, the “Ousc ladines” (index) section presents ancient and recent Ladin texts, both of a folkloristic type and also of a literary nature.
In the annual issues edited to date, there are several monographic volumes that are particularly interesting for their subject matter and the extent to which this is dealt with.
“Mondo ladino Quaderni”
This parallel series of the magazine is mainly dedicated to problems and subject matters linked to the world of schools, language teaching, sociolinguistics and training. It is issued without a set frequency.
Traditional dictionaries regarding the varieties of the Fassa Ladin language, modern dictionaries and grammar dictionaries of a regulatory type, referring to both Fassa Ladin and Standard Ladin, Electronic Dictionary on CD-ROM (IFLD), materials for literacy teaching courses and for self-learning with audio cassettes.
