Italian is one of the languages of western culture. What would the world be like without Italian music and opera, without the wonders of the Renaissance – Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo, Brunelleschi – the writings of Dante, Petrarca and Boccaccio, which are the basis of much of our modern art and literature. Italian is a romance language deriving from Latin. It is spoken principally in Europe: in Italy, San Marino, the Vatican and in the Italian part of Switzerland.
