Italy, officially the Italian Republic, is a unitary legislative republic in Europe. Italy covers a location of 301,338 km2 (116,347 sq mi) as well as has a mostly pleasant climate; due to its form, it is frequently referred to in Italy as lo Stivale (the Boot). With 61 million inhabitants, it is the 5th most populous country in Europe. Italy is a really highly developed country and has the third largest economy in the Eurozone and the eighth-largest worldwide.

Given that ancient times, Etruscan, Magna Graecia and also various other cultures have prospered in the territory of present-day Italy, being eventually soaked up by Rome, that has for centuries remained the leading spiritual and political centre of Western civilisation, funding of the Roman Empire but Christianity. Throughout the Dark Ages, the Italian Peninsula encountered calamitous infiltrations by barbarian tribes, and starting around the 11th century, many Italian city-states rose to great success via delivery, banking and also commerce (indeed, modern capitalism has its roots in Medieval Italy). Specifically during The Renaissance, Italian culture thrived, creating artists, polymaths, and also scholars such as Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Michelangelo and Machiavelli. Italian travelers such as Polo, Columbus, Vespucci, and Verrazzano appreciated new routes to the Far East and the New World, helping to usher in the European Age of Discovery. Italy would continue to be fragmented right into lots of warring states for the rest of the Middle Ages, consequently falling prey to larger European powers such as France, Spain, and also later on Austria. Italy would thus enter an extended period of decline that lasted until the mid 19th century.
