language preservation efforts by govts/organizations?

I'm writing a paper about minority language preservation. I devoted part of another paper to this topic in a previous course, so I have a fair amount of info and a list of useful resources from that. However, I need to go into more detail about it for this assignment; it's for my Italian civ class, so it will focus mainly on the regional languages of that country.

Can anyone point me in the direction of legislation or other relevant measures passed/statements issued in Italy, by the EU, or really anywhere in the world, aimed at recognizing or preserving minority languages and dialects?

(Also, a bit off-topic, but I thought it'd be worth asking here: is there an active LJ community for help with citations, footnotes, endnotes, and the various formats--MLA, APA, Turabian, and whatever else is out there?)
