Transcript of Untitled Prezi
Italy is a country in Southern Europe and a member of the European Union. Its official name is Repubblica Italiana. Italy is a democratic republic and is a founding member of the European Union.
Its President is Giorgio Napolitano and its Prime Minister is Matteo Renzi. Before 1861, it was made up of smaller kingdoms and city-states.
People from Italy are called Italians. Nearly all the Italians are Christian, and most of these are Roman Catholics
People and culture
The official language of Italy is Italian and in some small areas German, Slovenian or French. People also speak languages such as Sicilian and Sardinian, which are very similar to Italian, but are different dialects of Italian.
Most people in Italy are Roman Catholics, but the Catholic Church is no longer officially the state religion. 87.8% of the people said they were Roman Catholic.Only about a third said they were active members (36.8%). There are also other Christian groups in Italy, more than 700,000 Eastern Orthodox Christians. 180,000 of them belong to the Greek Orthodox Church.
The Head of State is Giorgio Napolitano, whose task began in May 2006 and, for the first time since Italy became a republic, started a second term in May 2013 (the President of the Republic remains for 7 years). Napolitano is the eleventh President of the Italian Republic and he was preceded by Carlo Azeglio Ciampi. The first president was Enrico De Nicola.
one of the most popular and typical Italian food is the "pizza"
History of pizza
Although the word pizza was first documented in 990 AD in Gaeta and successively in different parts of Central and South Italy, the history of the dish itself is not very clear or well documented.
The precursor of pizza was probably the focaccia, a flat bread known to the Romans as "panis focacius", to which toppings were then added
The term 'pizza' first appeared "in a Latin text from the southern Italian town of Gaeta in 997 AD, which claims that a tenant of certain property is to give the bishop of Gaeta duodecim pizze ['twelve pizzas'] every Christmas Day, and another twelve every Easter Sunday"
