My country is Italy, Italy covers an area of one hundred 16 thousand 347 sq mi and has a largely temperate climate; due to its shape, it is often referred to in Italy as lo Stivale which means the Boot. With 61 million inhabitants, it is the 5th most populous country in Europe. Italy is a very highly developed country and has the third largest economy in the Eurozone and the eighth-largest in the world.
