Social Conventions

Family plays a major role in every day life in Italy and time spent with family is never rushed.  First impressions are important and handshakes are traditional and then a kiss on both cheeks once you are more familiar with a person.  If planning on visiting churches, knees and shoulders should be covered.  

 

Language

Italian is the official language of the country, but there are different dialects.  In areas bordering Austria, German is spoken.  English is also spoken often in tourist areas.

 

Religion

Almost 90% of the population of Italy is Roman Catholic.  There are also Protestant and Muslim minorities.
