Summary

A peninsula in southern Europe extending into the Mediterranean Sea, Italy is bordered by Austria, France, Slovenia, and Switzerland. It is home to many of the most beautiful and historical sites and collections around the world—from the Colosseum, Vatican City, the Isle of Capri, and the canals of Venice to Michelangelo’s David, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, and Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus.

Italy provides an insightful and up-to-date guide to a country that has been at the forefront of European economic and political unification. Informative sections examine the landscape and climate; Italy’s resources, climate, and infrastructure; the people and environment of Italy; and challenges for the future. Full-color photographs and illustrations accompany maps and graphs, making this a visually appealing guide to the wonders and particulars of Italy. Additional resources include an introductory chapter, a glossary, lists of further information, and a comprehensive index.
