Italy has 60,626,442 inhabitants according to 1/1/2011 municipal records (Anagrafe). Its population density, at 201/km² (520/sq. mile), is higher than that of most Western European countries as its mentioned in Italy population density map. However the distribution of the population is widely uneven. The most densely populated areas are the Po Valley (that accounts for almost a half of the national population) and the metropolitan areas of Rome and Naples, while vast regions such as the Alps and Appennines highlands, the plateaus of Basilicata and the island of Sardinia are very sparsely populated.
About 68% of Italian population density is classified as urban as you can see in Italy population density map, a relatively low figure among developed countries. During the last two decades, Italy underwent a devolution process, that eventually led to the creation of administrative metropolitan areas, in order to give major cities and their metropolitan areas a provincial status (somehow similar to PRC direct-controlled municipality). However, none of these new local authorities has yet become fully operative
Italy ranks number 23 in the list of countries (and dependencies) by population. The population density in Italy is 206 per Km2 (532 people per mi2) as its shown in Italy population density map, according to its total land area which is 294,140 Km2 (113,568 sq. miles). 69.5 % of the population is urban (42,006,701 people in 2020) while the median age in Italy is 47.3 years.
