Language Profile: Italian

Italian PromoItalian, the national language of Italy, is a Romance language with about 60 million native speakers in Italy, Switzerland, San Marino, the Vatican City, Malta and Eritrea, and an additional 4 million or so worldwide.

The many regional dialects of Italian began to emerge from Latin in the 10th century. The central Tuscan dialect began to emerge prominently in the 14th century and was eventually standardized into modern standard Italian—although only about 50% of Italians speak it as a first language. Other regional dialects prevail, some with a high degree of variation. Speakers of Tuscan would find Venetian and Lombard to be very different and would have difficulty understanding Napoletano; meanwhile, Sicilian and Piemontese are so different from Tuscan that they are often regarded as separate languages altogether.
