Italy (Italia) is a republic in southern Europe. The country can be generally divided into the more urban north and the mostly rural south. The more prosperous north contains most of Italy’s larger cities and about two-thirds of the country’s population. Administratively, Italy is divided into 20 regions, each of which is subdivided into provinces and communes.
