Italian ( italiano (help·info), or lingua italiana) is a Romance language spoken by 62 million people in Italy, Malta, San Marino, Vatican City and minorities in Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia and France, and immigrant communities in the Americas and Australia. Many native speakers are native bilinguals of both standardised Italian and regional varieties.
In Switzerland, Italian is one of four official languages, spoken mainly in the Swiss cantons of Grigioni and Ticino. It is also the official language of San Marino, as well as the primary language of Vatican City. It is co-official in Slovenian Istria and in part of the Istria County in Croatia. The Italian language adopted by the state after the unification of Italy is based on the Tuscan dialect, which beforehand was only available to upper class Florentine society. Its development was also influenced by other Italian dialects and by the Germanic language of the post-Roman invaders.
