Italian becomes official language … of Italy?

Who else is confused that Italian was not the official language of Italy? Or is it just me? This is bizarre – I always thought the official language of Italy was Italian. After all, that’s what they taught us at school. But it seems all that learning at school was wrong. Italian has become the official language of Italy on either the 29th or 30th of March, 2007.

According to Yahoo! Odd News, the Italian language has only been put through as part of the Italian Constitution. And 75 Politicians opposed Italian being the official language of Italy in Parliament. The Tuscan dialect is what is known as modern Italian. Other dialects can be incomprehensible compared to the Tuscan dialect.
