italy is largely homogeneous linguistically and religiously but is diverse culturally, economically, and politically. italy has the fifth-highest population density in europe--about 200 persons per square kilometer (490 per sq. mi.). minority groups are small, the largest being the german-speaking people of bolzano province and the slovenes around trieste. there are also small communities of albanian, greek, ladino, and french origin. immigration has increased in recent years, however, while the italian population is declining overall due to low birth rates. although roman catholicism is the majority religion--85% of native-born citizens are nominally catholic--all religious faiths are provided equal freedom before the law by the constitution. factmonster.com
