The population of Italy
Italy has a population of around 60 million. During the last 150 years, the population of Italy has almost tripled from 26 million to 60 million. Around 67% of the population live in densely populated areas like Rome and Naples. A lot of immigration from the suburbs has transformed these major cities from the 1960s so that they have become what we see today. Out of the population of Italy, 7.1% of the population are foreign citizens. Some areas of Italy are densely populated. This includes places like Florence, Turin and Milan. Other parts of Italy are sparsely populated like Genoa, the Apennines and the Alps. The table below shows the population of some of Italy's many towns and cities.
