Yes, I just was surprised because the Germanic languages are linguistically a separate branch from the Latin languages. But they both stem from the Indo-European language family. Btw, the Italian word is funziona whereas this Bergamasque word, funge, is closer to the German. This is probably due to German influence and occupation of the Bergamasque pre-Alps during WWII, the historically changing borders of northern Italy, and the cultural mixing of German populations in that area.
