Italy

Italy is a coastal country in southern Europe located on the Apennine Peninsula. It covers an area of over 301,000 km² and has a population of about 60.4 million. The capital is Rome.

Italy is a republic with a parliamentary democracy. Its neighbours are France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. Italy is home to two autonomous countries, the Vatican City and San Marino. The country is a member of the European Union, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and the United Nations (United Nations). 

Italy is surrounded almost entirely by the Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, Ionian and Ligurian seas. The country also includes the famous islands of Sicily, Sardinia, and Elba. The surface of Italy is mostly mountainous. Almost the entire country is covered by the Alps, with the highest peak, Mont Blanc, at 4,807 metres above sea level. As a result, earthquakes are very common here. The climate varies greatly depending on the location. In the north it is strongly influenced by the Alps, while in the south there is a subtropical Mediterranean climate.
