According to watchtutorials, Italy is a highly diverse and populous country, with the fourth largest population in Europe. As of 2019, the population of Italy is estimated to be around 60.5 million people. The majority of the population is concentrated in the northern regions, such as Lombardy, Piedmont, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna. This is due to the fact that these areas are more industrialized and developed than other parts of the country. Additionally, these regions are more densely populated due to their proximity to major cities like Rome and Milan. In terms of age structure, Italy has an aging population with approximately 22% aged 65 years or older; while youth under 15 years old make up just 14.2% of the population. The majority of Italians belong to the Roman Catholic Church, although there are also other religious denominations present such as Islam and Judaism. Nearly all Italian citizens speak Italian as their first language; however there are also several regional dialects spoken throughout the country which vary from region to region. In terms of immigration, Italy has seen an increase in immigrants over recent years coming from countries such as Morocco, Albania and Romania who come seeking economic opportunities or fleeing conflict in their home countries.
