Italian is a romance language, derived from Latin, and shares this distinction with French and Spanish. It’s spoken by 70 million people across the world. Italian is spoken in Italy, neighboring Switzerland, San Marino, Vatican City, and other countries. Argentina has the distinction of having Italian as its second most spoken language.
Italian is traceable all the way back to the 900s. One of the first written examples of it was in a legal document called Placiti Cassinesi for a land dispute between Southern Italian monasteries between 960 and 963.
