The paper focuses on Italian linguistic repertoire and particularly on the relation between Italian and dialect in the last few years. Two aspects of this relation are especially taken into accounti: 1) place and functions of dialects within urban linguistic spaces, where dialect seems to play an important role in order to define and build a place identity; 2) the way in which such a place identity is represented in the web. Thus, the paper aims to show how urban identity is expressed and built by means of traditional and new uses of dialects as they can be observed in YouTube Peppa Pig cartoons parodies made in the urban dialects of Palermo and Catania.
