Message 1: the Ligurian language

Subject: the Ligurian language

In a book about Etruscans, I read that Ligurian is one of 3
Non-indoeuropean languages spoken by peoples living in the Italian
pennisula. I've also read about a relatioship between Monagasque
tounge of Monaco and Ligurian. Is the Ligurian language completely
extinct? If not, are there established communities along the Riviera
where it is spoken. Another thing I want to ask about is whether there
is any link between Etruscan and Ligurian.
