Origin of the Italian language

Italian, just like Portuguese, originated from Latin, but not the Latin spoken by the elite of the Roman Empire.

Italian is a language that developed from the Latin known as “volgo”, which means “of the people”, or popular. More precisely, Italian developed from a dialect spoken in the region of Tuscany. From the 13th century on, it quickly expanded and even become the language spoken by the Catholic Church, for example.

Italian even has an influence on English, lending works like piano, graffiti, corridor, pizza and money. Dante Alighieri and Giovanni Boccaccio are two famous authors vital to the standardization of the language.

Italian is among the twenty most widely spoken languages in the world, with some 66 million speakers.
