The population of Italy is about 60 million/millions (?).

This country is famous for its art, architecture, food and fashion.
It's a catholic country, the Pope is located in Vaticano, tiny state located within Rome.

Italian people consider their food the best in the world, they are very proud of they own country but they are the first person to criticise it.
They mad of football, it's considered a religion, but in these days italian football is not in a good moment.

I had been living in Florence, this city is located in the centre of Italy.
It has around 400 thousand people.
Near my place there are lots of agricultural and manufacturing firms.
Florence has plenty of turists expecially during the nice seasons, they come and visit the monuments, churches, art galleries, builings and their architecture.

Florence is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. This art movement let know and become famous lots of artists around the world (scientists, poets, sculptors and painters).
During the 15th century, Florence was home to the Medici, an important noble family.

On the 4th of March there will be the elections/ there are the elections.
Italians are going to vote the Prime Minister.
Italians worried about immigration issue. They have to face the increasing number of migrants arriving along the coast by boat from Lybia to Lampedusa.

In these days In Italy we’re celebrating the Carnival.
Not too far from my house there’s Viareggio, famous town for its Carnival.
Lots of children go down to the streets and celebrate Carnival dressing up masks and costumes.
The parade of floats is held on the Viareggio avenue located alongside the local beach.

Thank you!
