Abstract

Italy forms a mountainous peninsula extending into the Mediterranean, also having jurisdiction over the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. The Apennine mountain range, which forms the backbone of the country, rises to over 3,000 m, and is flanked to the east by a low-lying coastal strip, bordering the Adriatic Sea. The Po Valley, which flows eastward across the northern part of the country, separates the Apennines from the frontal ranges of the Alps. The country supports a population of almost 61 million.
