The famous boot-shaped country of Italy is home to the beautiful Italian language. It is a Romance language, a descendent of the spoken Latin of the Roman Empire, and is an official language in Italy, Switzerland, Vatican City and San Marino. Amongst the Romance languages, it is the closest to Latin in terms of vocabulary.

Thanks to the language’s long period of evolution, Italian boasts a variety of dialects throughout its different regions, a variety that is also reflected in the regional cuisine. The “standard” Italian, however, derives from the Tuscan dialect, having been established by author Alessandro Manzoni after the unification of Italy in 1861. It is widely believed that the language variant used in the masterpieces of Dante Alighieri and Francesco Petrarca was also a key factor in the choice of Tuscan as the standard. The use of English “loan-words” is widespread in the Italian language, often being seen in marketing, engineering and IT-related documentation.
