Italian, as the national language of Italy, traces its origins to the interaction between the ancient languages of the Italian peninsula and the ancient Latin of the ancient Roman conquerors. So the people of Italy have a long history of knowing a language common to all of the peninsula's peoples, and a language that has strong local meanings and roots. This historical difference between what is spoken in public and what is spoken at home and locally still is seen today in dialectical Italian. For example, some of the local dialects of northwestern Italy have pronunciations and sayings in common with French, Italian Swiss, and Monegasque ways of speaking. But regardless of the emotional and historic importance of Italy's many local and regional dialects, there always is an advantage to knowing the standard, national Italian language. As an example, there are many words that are similar enough in the major Romance languages that the attentive speaker of one gets by in them all. Additionally, it tends to be easier on the speaker of Italian to understand the Latin of the Church and of the classical writings, and vice versa.

Italians speak Italian.
They both derive from Latin so are very similar like all other languages in Europe but I think Spanish is more similar to French than Italian.
yes because corsica is sorta in between Italy and France.im 13 and i answered this. Dummy.(; - Ignore the rude child. Being a blend of both French and Italian cultures, Cors…icans do speak both languages. However, they do have their own native dialect which utilises both languages.
ancient greek and latin
I don't think languages can be popular,but many people use words from the Italian language in their daily lives. Many words dealing with music, like: piano, suprano, tempo, an…d alto. Many people do know about the Italian language and Italian people, and they try to copy them, or learn their language.
No but they are very similar, for they stemmed from Latin. Most European languages are similar in some ways. Here is an example of Spanish being like Italian 8 in Spanish …is ocho 8 in Italian is otto. 8 in Filipino/Tagalog in Walo. So no similarity there though!Except they all end in o.
