What is Italian most famous for?

Italian is most famous for the musicality of the language. The sounds and the way in which words are grouped lend themselves to song, music, and dance. That's why so many of the opera composers were Italian. That also is why so many opera singers, orchestra players and conductors still are Italian.

Tied with the musicality is the ancient feel of the Italian language. Of the five major Romance languages, Italian is the closest in appearance and sound to the classical Latin of the ancient Romans. The other major Romance languages of French, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish don't show as great an impact on their development from the interaction of classical Latin and ancient native languages.
