Languages Of Italy
There are approximately 34 living spoken languages and related dialects in Italy
Italy
, most of which are indigenous evolutions of Vulgar Latin , and thus are classified as Romance languages . Although they are sometimes referred to as regional languages , there is no uniformity within any Italian region, and speakers from one locale within a region are typically very aware of features that distinguish their local language from the speech of other places nearby. The official and most widely spoken language is Italian , a descendant of Tuscan . All Romance varieties spoken in Italy, except Standard Italian , are often colloquially referred to as "dialects", although for some of them the term may coexist with other labels like "minority languages" or "vernaculars"

Language Family
A LANGUAGE FAMILY is a group of languages related through descent from a common _ancestral language_ or _parental language_, called the proto-language of that family. The term "family" reflects the tree model of language origination in historical linguistics , which makes use of a metaphor comparing languages to people in a biological family tree , or in a subsequent modification, to species in a phylogenetic tree of evolutionary taxonomy . Linguists therefore describe the _daughter languages_ within a language family as being _genetically related_. Estimates of the number of living languages vary from 5,000 to 8,000, depending on the precision of one's definition of "language", and in particular on how one classifies dialects . The 2013 edition of Ethnologue catalogs just over 7,000 living human languages. A "living language" is simply one that is used as the primary form of communication of a group of people
