What can be said in seven sentences about the Italian language?
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.

Yes , the Italian language may be called the language of love. But the same statement may be made about the Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese and French languages. These five - a…nd others such as Galician, Catalan and many others on the European side of the Mediterranean - are called members of the Romance family of languages. The term actually refers to their development from the interaction of ancient local languages with the ancient Latin of the conquering Romans. Additionally, all of the Romance languages are spoken in countries that are known for beautiful scenery, fine food and interesting tourist activities. All three of these characteristics also work together to create romantic environments for those seeking love as well as for those who already have found it. So the play on words is accurate in terms of Italian (and the others in the linguistic family): a Romance language descended from Latin and linked with situations lending themselves to romance.
