People in Italy speak the Italian language.
Italian, but there are many dialects and a few regional languages such as Ladino. Some people in the Dolomites speak a dialect of German. Near the French border there are dial…ects of Occitan or ProvenÃ§al spoken as well as French. In Trieste some people speak Slovenian or Croatian, and in Sardinia they also have their own language. The above is a good answer. In addition, Italy, like most other major European nations has growing numbers of apparently permanent immigrants for whom Arabic, Turkish, and other Middle Eastern and African languages are primary and will continue to be primary for at least another generation.
Depends on the people. Most Italians learn English or French in school so they may know a bit of that. Recent immigrants will speak the language of the country they came from …ie. Romanian, Albanian, Turkish, Swahili, etc.
Almost all Italian natives are bilingual in that they speak very well both their local dialect and standard Italian. Nowadays there are fewer and fewer illiterates who do not …speak the official language very well. Even the erderly who mainly speak a dialect are exposed to Italian everyday, because that is the language spoken on the telly or in public offices. Foreigners living in Italy, or some well-educated people, often speak other languages too. Young people are supposed to speak English, because it is a mandatory subject for all, during compulsory education. But, unfortunately, English teachers are very rarely English natives in Italian schools, so do not expect everybody to possess a high level of English. In some provinces and regions other languages are spoken too. E.g. French in Valle d'Aosta and German in Sud Tirolo and Trentino. Also Slovene, in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
In naples they speak Italian though quite a lot of people there are bilingual, they also speak some English.
In Genoa they speak Italian and Genoese dialect.
Italian and English
The official language is Italian. Lombard and Emilian dialects are also spoken.
In Italy they speak Italian. In Spain they speak Spanish.
Why, Craigish of course. Don't you know? Oh also there's a small minority that speaks Italian too.
