Italian Language

Learn Dutch VocabularyItalian is a Romance language spoken mainly in Europe. Its speakers amount up to 64 million in total and account for about 13% of European Union citizens. Italian is the official language of San Marino and a primary language of the Vatican City. It is also one of the official languages of Switzerland. 

Italian is descended from Latin and also closest in terms of vocabulary. Its poetic and literary origins date back to the twelfth century. The first texts that are considered Italian were written in so called Vulgar Italian (descendant of Vulgar Latin) and date back to 930's. The modern Italian as we know it today has been, however, shaped by relatively recent events. First texts in normalised Italian were by Dante Alighieri in his epic poems known as Divina Commedia. Italian language further fully bloomed during the renaissance period in works of Petrarca and Boccaccio.
