Italy is located in Southern Europe, it is a peninsula extending into the central Mediterranean Sea, northeast of Tunisia as its shown in Italy map. The terrain of Italy is mostly rugged and mountainous; some plains, coastal lowlands. Climate: Italy is predominantly Mediterranean; Alpine in far north; hot, dry in south.
Italy has a strategic location dominating central Mediterranean as well as proximity to Western Europe across the Adriatic Sea as its mentioned in Italy map. The government system is a republic; the chief of state is the president, and the head of government is the prime minister. Italy has a diversified industrial economy, which is divided into a developed industrial north, dominated by private companies, and a less developed, welfare-dependent, agricultural south. Italy is a member of the European Union (EU).
The name Italia originally applied only to a part of what is now Southern Italy–according to Antiochus of Syracuse, the southern portion of the Bruttium peninsula (modern Calabria: province of Reggio, and part of the provinces of Catanzaro and Vibo Valentia as you can see in Italy map). But by his time Oenotria and Italy had become synonymous, and the name also applied to most of Lucania as well.

Italy is a founding member of the European Community, now the European Union (EU), and of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Italy was admitted to the United Nations in 1955, and it is a member and strong supporter of a wide number of international organizations (see Italy on map), such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade/World Trade Organization (GATT/WTO), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the Council of Europe, and the Central European Initiative.
Italy population is a little over 60,400,000 people as its shown in Italy on map. Although the Italian birth rate is low, the population is increasing due to immigrants entering the country. The population density is about 200 people per square kilometer. While Italian is spoken throughout the country, many regional dialects are still spoken.
While Italy may be the home of famous car manufacturers such as Ferrari and Maserati, anyone who has had to drive and park in one of the country cities may not be too enthusiastic about having to relive the experience. The public transport network in Italy is quite good, and incorporates trains, buses, and ferry services around the coast as its mentioned in Italy on map, and is definitely worth considering if you are looking for a slightly less stressful holiday experience.

Italy is subdivided into 20 regions as you can see in the detailed map of Italy (regioni, singular regione), five of these regions having a special autonomous status that enables them to enact legislation on some of their local matters. The country is further divided into 110 provinces (province) and 8,100 municipalities (comuni). There are also 15 metropolitan cities (città metropolitane), established in 2009, but this administrative division is not yet operational.
Italy used to be a country of mass emigration from the late 19th century until the 1970s. Between 1898 and 1914, the peak years of Italian diaspora, approximately 750,000 Italians emigrated each year as its shown in the detailed map of Italy. Italian communities once thrived in the former African colonies of Eritrea (nearly 100,000 at the beginning of World War II), Somalia and Libya (150,000 Italians settled in Libya, constituting about 18% of the total population).
Thanks to the great longitudinal extension of the peninsula and the mostly mountainous inetrnal conformation, the climate of Italy is highly diverse as its shown in the detailed map of Italy. In of the inland northern and central regions, the climate ragnes from humid subtropical to humid continental and oceanic.

Northern Italy is a wide cultural, historical and geographical definition, without any administrative usage, used to indicate the northern part of the Italian state, also referred as Il Nord, Settentrione or Alta Italia as its shown in the map of Northern Italy. It coincides with two areas belonging to Italian first level NUTS of the European Union: North-West (Nord-Ovest) that includes the regions of: Aosta Valley, Liguria, Lombardy and Piedmont. North-East (Nord-Est) that includes the regions of: Emilia-Romagna, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol and Veneto.
By far, the larger portion of Northern Italy is occupied by the basin of the Po river, which comprises the whole of the broad plain extending from the foot of the Apennines to that of the Alps, together with the valleys and slopes on both sides of it as its mentioned in the map of Northern Italy. Throughout its whole course indeed, from its source in Monte Viso to its outflow into the Adriatic Sea—a distance of more than 5 degrees of longitude, or 220 miles in a direct line—the Po receives all the waters that flow from the Apennines northwards, and all those that descend from the Alps towards the south, till one comes to the Adige, which, after pursuing a parallel course with the Po for a considerable distance, enters the Adriatic by a separate mouth.
The area has one of the highest GDP per capita in Europe. Northern Italy is the most developed and productive area of the country, and the first part of Italy to be industrialized in the last half of the 19th century, the so called industrial triangle formed by the manufacturing centres of Milan and Turin and the seaport of Genoa. Nowadays, the industrial core of the area shifted eastward as you can see in the map of Northern Italy, with just Lombardy remaining from the original industrial triangle, together with Veneto and Emilia-Romagna; the same shift happened for GDP per capita, with the eastern regions being today wealthier, always together with Lombardy, than Piedmont and Liguria.

Southern Italy or Il Mezzogiorno (Italian pronunciation: [meddzoˈdʒɔːrno], meaning 'Midday') is the traditional term for the southern half of the Italian state, encompassing the southern section of the continental Italian Peninsula and the two major islands of Sicily and Sardinia as its shown in the map of Southern Italy. It coincides with the administrative regions of Basilicata, Campania, Calabria, Apulia, Abruzzo, Molise, Sicily, and finally Sardinia, that is considered as part of Southern Italy more for geographic reasons than for cultural, historical reasons. Some also include the most southern and eastern parts of Lazio (Sora, Cassino, Gaeta, Cittaducale and Amatrice districts) within the Mezzogiorno, because these territories were part, along with all the already listed ones (except Sardinia), of the historical Kingdom of Two Sicilies.
Southern Italy carries a unique legacy of peculiar nature, archeology and culture. It features many major tourist attractions, such as the Palace of Caserta, the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other archaeological sites as its mentioned in the map of Southern Italy (many of which are protected by UNESCO). Some of its beaches, woodlands and mountains are preserved in several National Parks. Some medieval towns are located in Southern Italy. The history of Southern Italy boasts numerous kings, queens, princes, popes, writers, poets, philosophers, knights, artists, architects, craftsmen, musicians, scholars, scientists, politicians and farmers.
Southern Italy forms the lower "boot" of the Italian Peninsula, containing the ankle (Abruzzo, Molise, Campania and southern Lazio), the toe (Calabria), and the heel (Apulia) along with the major islands (Sicily and Sardinia) as you can see in the map of Southern Italy. Separating the "heel" and the "boot" is the Gulf of Taranto, named after the city of Taranto, which sits at the angle between the heel and the boot itself. It is an arm of the Ionian Sea. The rest of the southern third of the Italian Peninsula is studded with smaller gulfs and inlets.
