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.
