From here in Italian - it seems that Sardinian is to be recognized among 11 other minority languages in Italy.
The recognition of the Sardinian language among the 12 minority languages by the Monti government, with the possibility of teaching it in schools, utilization in judicial districts, as well as the diffusion of cultural programs through the mainstream media, represents an importent milestone for which our Party in its history of over 90 years has always worked....the historical Sardinian minority, recognized with law n. 482/99, from today will now enjoy an equal protection to that of linguistic groups protected under international treaties, petting an end to the discrimination perpetrated for many long years.
The other languages are:
Albanian, Catalan, German, Greek, Slovenian, Croatian, French, Franco-Provençal, Friulian, Ladin, Occitan.
