About the Italian Language

Italian is a Romance code spoken by about 63 million individuals, basically in Italy. In Switzerland, Italian is regarded as 4 official languages. It is equally the official code of San Marino and Vatican City. Standard Italian, adopted by the state after the unification of Italy, is based on Tuscan dialect and is somewhat intermediate between Italo-Dalmatian languages of the South and Northern Italian dialects of the North.

Regional variations is known by many factors: the openness of vowels, the length of the consonants, and influence of the localized dialect (for illustration, annà replaces andare in the region of Rome for the infinitive "to go").
