  • Fun Facts: Italy has 15 minority languages officially recognized by the government including Sardinian, Friulian, Catalan, Occitan, French, Slovenian, Croatian, Albanian, and Greek. The small European countries of San Marino and Vatican City are enclaved within Italy. Europe's three active volcanoes are all in Southern Italy: Mt. Etna, Mt. Stromboli, Mt. Vesuvius. Italians have a difficult time identifying with Italy as a single nation (although it was unified until 1870). The three colors on the Italian flag represent virtues: hope, faith, and charity. In the late 13th century in Italy, Salvino D'Armate invented the first wearable eyeglasses. William Shakespeare set 13 of his plays in Italy. The world's oldest bank still in operation is the "Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena" which was founded in 1472. Florence Cathedral has the largest brick dome ever constructed (c.1420). Italians invented the Violin, cello, and modern piano. There are more famous fashion designers from Italy than from any other country. Italy is roughly the size of Arizona. The city of Syracuse in Sicily was once the largest Ancient Greek city in the world.
