Italy travel guide
Italy did not exist as a state until the country's unification in 1861.
Due to this comparatively late unification, and the historical autonomy
of the regions that comprise the Italian Peninsula, many traditions and
customs that are now recognized as distinctly Italian can be identified
by their regions of origin. Despite the political and social distinction
of these regions, Italy's contributions to the cultural and historical heritage
of Europe and the world remain immense. Italy is home to the greatest number
of UNESCO World Heritage Sites (45) to date, and has rich collections of
world art, culture and literature from many different periods.
