Italy is a parliamentary republic unit in south-central Europe. To the north it borders France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia along the Alps. South consists of the entire Italian peninsula, Sicily, Sardinia, the two largest islands in the Mediterranean and many other small islands. The independent states of San Marino and Vatican City are enclaves within Italy, while Campione d’Italia is an Italian enclave in Switzerland.
The region of Italy covers about 301,338 km2 (116,347 square miles) and is influenced by a temperate climate of the season. With 60.6 million inhabitants, Italy is the fifth most populous country in Europe and 23 most populous in the world.
Rome, capital of Italy, was for centuries the political and religious center in western civilization as the capital of the Roman Empire and the place of the Holy See. After the decline of the Roman Empire, Italy endured numerous invasions by foreign nations, of Germanic tribes, like the Lombards and Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Normans and later, among others. Centuries later, Italy was the cradle of the Maritime Republics and the Renaissance, a highly successful intellectual movement that will prove to be integrated into the training of the future development of European thought.
For much of its post-Roman history, Italy was divided into many kingdoms and city-states (such as the Kingdom of Sardinia, the Kingdom of Two Sicilies and the Duchy of Milan), but united in 1861 after a tumultuous period of history known as “The Risorgimento”. In the late 19th century, I, and the Second World War, Italy had a colonial empire, which extended its rule to Libya, Eritrea, Somalia, Ethiopia, Albania, the Dodecanese and a concession in Tianjin, China.
Italy is important in many global issues, from military problems to cultural and diplomatic debates. It carries a high political influence, and is a power within social and economic Europe.
