Italian, or italiano, is the fourth most common language in Europe. It is also widely spoken in North and East Africa, by expat communities in the Americas, and it’s the main working language of the Holy See.
Italian also belongs among the top five of the most commonly taught foreign languages on the planet.
It is known as the “language of music” because of its traditional use in music terminology. This is because, starting with the 16th century, many of the groundbreaking innovations in music were done by Italians, and the language gained a lot of influence in the field.
The first written recordings of what can be considered Italian, date back more than a thousand years.
