Italy is approximately 116,400 square miles (including Sicily and Sardinia), which is slightly larger than Arizona.
The official name of Italy is the Italian Republic (Repubblica Italiana).
Italy is said to have more masterpieces per square mile than any other country in the world.
When McDonald's opened in 1986 in Rome, food purists outside the restaurant gave away free spaghetti to remind people of their culinary heritage.
