In Gallura (Sardinia) their language is not only close to Corsican, but it is Corsican, in a dialectal variation. Thus, there are more than 1.000 Corsican speakers in Italy (Sardinia). The number of speakers of Gallurese is approximately equal to 100.000, it means that we can consider them as100.000 Corsican speakers. In fact, the "Sartinese" dialect of Corsican (my dialect, and the one I'm studying) is closer to Gallurese than to the dialect of Bastia. If you are interested, I can provide you with some documents with analyses and linguistic comparison between both languages.
