Is Corsica and sardinia part of Italy?
Sardinia is part of modern day Italy , Corsica is not. The Kingdom of Sardinia was one of the driving forces behind Italian reuinification. Corsica however is still occupied by France (and possibly kept the island, as France supported the italians against the Austrian Empire). The Corsican language is pretty much a tuscan/italian dialect, though it's use is being surpessed by the french ("only one language in the Republic ,and that is french" ) Most all corsicans can speak french (even though many consider corsican/italian their native speech)

Italy is on the southern border of Europe, extending out in the Mediterranean Sea Italy can be considered a part of Southern Europe as well as a part of Western Europe.
It was under French rule and had been for a year when Napoleon was born.
This is self-explanatory. The north of Italy is obviously the northern part of country called Italy
Palermo is in Sicily; Milan is inthe Northern part of Italy in the region of Lombardy
\n . \nYes, it lies south of a line drawn through the approximate middle of the continent. . But the northern is located not in the south

It is in northeast Italy between the Po and Piave Rivers on the Adriatic Sea.
\n. \nWow! Those two countries are quite far one from each other. So your answer is NO, definitely not. Just view a map.\n. \nI can see why you think that. Lithuania possesses Latin alphabet. But no, the above statement is correct.
Short answer: No. Long answer: UK, or United Kingdom is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Italy is located in southern Europe. The country noted to look like a high heeled boot on European maps also consists of the 2 largest islands in the Mediterranean sea, Sicily and Sardin…ia.

Yes. They are filming in Volterra, Italy after they finish up filming in Vancouver. The whole volturi scene should show Italy.
No. Italy is an entirely different nation. It is not even US territories. If you'd asked something like the Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico, that would have been okay. But no. Just no. You fail horribly.
Um, well i don't know right this moment but i will get started on this mission right now.
it's 249 miles ( 400 km ) so it is at least a 4,5 hour drive. Please check: http://www.howmanyhours.com/it/index.php# ... but you can hardly DRIVE from Genova to Porto Torres, as you need to go by ship! Sardinia is an island!
The body of water that lies between Corsica and Sardinia is theTyrrhenian Sea. The Tyrrhenian sea is 12,418 feet deep.
Italy is the large boot-shaped peninsula that projects into the central Mediterranean Sea in southern Europe. It includes the large islands of Sardinia to the west and Sicily to the south, which practically divides the sea in two.
No, no. Switzerland is a neighboring country of Italy in its north. Of course, due to the geographical short distance and the parts both countries are made of, the border is not a cultural 100% break-line. People in northern Italy speak a kind of Italian dialect related to the Italian dialect of the… Swiss state of ticino (don't forget though that Switzerland has more than one official language).

Pretty much. It rained a lot the last time I was there, but it was balmy and about 75-80 degrees.
Corsica is an island that is part of France, and France is a member of the European Union.
its an island. Sicily is an island in the mediterranean sea, yet it is still a part of the country Italy. :)
No Greece is not part of Italy. Greece and Italy are two seperate countries in Europe. They are also very close to one another on the globe.
Venice became part of the nation of Italy when Italy became anation in 1871. Before that it was part of a consortium of citystates and provinces.
The Mediterranean is the sea that surrounds the Italian islands of Sardinia and Sicily, and the three sides of the Italian peninsula. Its waters take on different, local names around each of the sides of the Italian peninsula. On the east side, they're called the Adriatic Sea. It's the sea by wh…ich the Italian city of Venezia [Venice] is accessed. To the south, they're called the Ionian Sea. On the west side, between Sicily and Sardinia, they're called the Tyrrhenian Sea. And between the northwest Italian coast and the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, they're called the Ligurian Sea. (MORE)
Sardinia is an island. So you can only get there by boat or by plane.
No. It is surrounded by Italy but not part of Italy. Though theVatican City is situated in Rome, Italy, it is a country in itself-- it even has it's own stamps!
Yes. In fact it is one of the founding members of the what would become the European Union.
Southern Europe contains Portugal Spain Italy Vatican City San Marino Malta Greece Cyprus and Turkey.
It depends on what time on history you are talking about. The Romans conquered most of northern Africa in the making of their empire. During WWII Italy conquered Ethiopia.
Other way around, Italy is part of Europe. Italy is a country, and Europe is a continent.
Well I'd have to say that there is a volcano in Sardinia because volcanoes are everywhere... the question is where is it and what is it called? x stroking chin x
The first mention of ravioli is in the writings of a merchant in the 14th century called Francesco di Marco. He was from Prato , a city in Tuscany, Italy.
Unfortunately Sardinia belongs to the Italian Republic since 1861. In reality the majority of Sardinian people identify themselves as Sardinian. The independentism movement is growing up during the last 20 years and the process of independence will hopefully start soon, following the one in ac…t in Scothland, Basc country,Catalunia.

Lamborghini never came from Italy. It came from Germany. I don't know the city in Germany, but i definitly know, that it did not ever come from Italy.
The first location was the town of Marina di Arbus on the rugged western coast of the island. Access to one area involved a tortuous trek over high sand dunes, with all the camera equipment being hand-carried in and out of the site - a situation the crew learned to accept all over Sardinia. Arbus wa…s the site of two of the most difficult stunts in the film. The first required the Black Stallion Â® to swim to shore, dragging young Alec behind him. A feat which posed some unique problems. A special barge had to be constructed on which to load the horse and transport him out to sea to his starting position for the swim to shore. The barge, designed by art director Aurelio Crugnola, was trucked into the location in pieces and assembled under the watchful eye of water specialist Giorgio Gallani. The whole population of Arbus gathered on the beach to help with the assembly and watch the exciting launch, certainly a "happening" for the tiny and remote village. The first attempt at loading the horse onto the barge failed and horse trainer Corky Randall suffered a head injury in the attempt. Thoughts turned to abandoning the project, but eventually the horse became accustomed to the water, and the barge proved invaluable. The second stunt filmed at Arbus made everyone uncomfortable: a group of deadly cobras were flown in from Milan with their handler Carlo Guidi for the scene in which the Black Stallion Â® must stomp and kill a snake which is about to strike Alec. The fatal venom was milked from each snake before it was used and a special serum was on hand in case of emergency, but the knowledge that a cobra can travel twice as fast as two legs made everyone extremely nervous. The discomfort which accompanied these early stunts was not eased by the Spartan living conditions which faced the crew. With no hotel in town, they were quartered in a school dormitory which had no facilities. Exposure to sun, sand, sea and dysentery did not enhance the situation. It was with no small relief that the crew headed for the next location, Capo Caccia, a spectacular spot also on the western coast, where cliffs rise 800 feet from the sea. The spot was chosen for its rocky heights, requiring that all equipment again be hand-carried up vertical precipices. Yet the rigors of the location were more than compensated in the crew's mind by the availability of a hot bath -the first in ten days. The third base of operation was La Caletta on the east coast of Sardinia. Filming was done at two nearby sites, Capo Comino and San Teodoro. Comino, one of the locations used by Lina Wertmueller in SWEPT AWAY, had originally been scouted months before as an ideal spot to stage the boy's first ride on the Black Stallion Â® . But when the crew arrived for actual filming, the beach was covered with several feet of decaying seaweed, and another beach had to be substituted. San Teodoro beach, about 30 miles away, was judged to be perfect with its mile-long stretch of fine white sugar sand and wide sand bar reaching far offshore, adding greatly to the safety and ease of the horse action shots. In mid-September, the unit moved to its fourth location, Costa Paradisio. Truly remote, the beach was surrounded by imposing rock formations. Since it was accessible only by boat or a narrow stone path, it was necessary to lead the horses in over the mountains circuitously, a trip which took three hours each way. For the horse crew, the four week stay at Costa Paradisio was an exhausting ordeal, but three outstanding sequences of horse action were completed there: the wild "Black" attacks Alec at a fresh water rain pool when he comes to drink; starving, the stallion accepts and eats seaweed that Alec has found for him, and their friendship is established and the stallion swims out to the rescue ship when fishermen come and take Alec from the island. For the last sequence, special horses were imported from the swamplands of Camargue, France, where an amazing breed has developed which is specially adapted for swimming at sea. The use of these horses greatly lowered the risks entailed in some of the water action shots, and made possible the realistic and stunning shots of "The Black" swimming in the open sea. The final site was Cala Ganone, on the eastern coast and accessible only by boat. It too was one of the locations used by Line Wertmueller in SWEPT AWAY, and is especially famous for its grottoes. A constant frustration in shooting exteriors on Sardinia was the ever-present sign of civilization. Because the island in the story was totally uninhabited, a special detail of men was assigned each day to comb the beaches for litter and smooth out footprints which were found even on the highest, most inaccessible looking sand dunes. [filming was completed over a nine-week period, and despite the obstacles presented by the difficult terrain, director Carroll Ballard feels the varied and unusual beauty of Sardinia captured on film creates a spectacular backdrop for the movie.
