Central Italian (italiano centrale or mediano) is a group of Italo-Dalmatian Romance lects spoken in central Italy in Lazio, Umbria, central Marche, the far south of Tuscany, and a small part of Abruzzo. The differences between these dialects are slight, mainly in inflection and stress of certain words.

Central Italian dialects are closely related and mutually intelligible to Tuscan, on which Standard Italian was based. Although a few isoglosses cross the area, no firm demarcating lines have been established between them, effectively making them a one wider dialect continuum.
The following dialects are part of the Central Italian group:
