Official in four countries plus official minority status in two
Italian (italiano or lingua italiana) is an official language in Italy, the Holy See (a.k.a., the Vatican), San Marino and in two cantons of Switzerland (the Grisons and Ticino). The language also has an official minority status in the portions of Croatia and Slovenia that form the western part of the Istrian peninsula.
Many speakers of Italian inhabit several countries where the language formerly had an official status: Albania (dating back to when the country had been annexed by the Kingdom of Italy), Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, the Nice, Savoy and Corsica regions of France, the Ionian Islands and the Dodecanese in Greece.
A translator can handle even the most difficult documents in Italian.
Italian is generally understood by the population of Corsica due the Corsican language’s proximity to Tuscan, the dialect on which modern Italian is based.
It used to be an official language in the areas formerly colonized by Italy – present-day Libya, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia – where it still plays an important role in certain sectors.
Importance in the European Union
Italian is a key language of the EU, due to its role as one of the working languages of the Council of Europe and one of the official languages of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, making Italian translation services in demand all throughout the region.
Some 15% (67 million) of the EU population speaks Italian, making it the second most-widely spoken language across the region. When the Italian-speaking populations of non-EU countries – Albania, Switzerland and the UK – are included, the total number of speakers climbs to 85 million.
Italian is the Holy See’s main working language and serves as the common language across the Roman Catholic hierarchy. It is also the language of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
Italian is one of the languages covered by the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Romania, although it is neither a protected idiom nor co-official.
Vast immigration from Italy has kept the language alive in its many overseas communities
Italian is also spoken by a large diaspora spread throughout the Americas (most notably in Argentina, Brazil (primarily in the city of São Paolo), Canada (mainly in Ontario), Costa Rica, Paraguay, the United States (concentrated in CT, NJ, NY and RI), Uruguay and Venezuela, as well as in Australia (second most spoken foreign language after Chinese).
Many Italian speakers are native in Italian and well as in the regional variety predominant in the area of Italy where they reside or from where they immigrated.
Importance in music, the arts and gastronomy
From adagietto to vivacissimo, Italian composers were the first to use music notation, as well as the first to annotate the scores they had written. The practice quickly spread throughout Italy and then became the written lingua franca of Europe’s classical music community.
With the Renaissance starting in Florence, Italy, Italian quickly developed and has since maintained a key role in the worlds of art and gastronomy.
