Italian - Italiano
Italian is the official language of the world's eighth-largest economy. The large and affluent consumer class of Italy's 60 million citizens has great importance in international business and culture.
Italian has a great deal in common with French, Spanish, and the other Romance languages.
Occupying the land where the Roman Empire began, Italian retains more characteristics of Latin than other Romance languages, which give it curious exceptions where other Romance languages may seem more rule-based.
As one of the Big Five languages of Western Europe, Italian is a high priority for Gistology.
