Varieties of Italian language

Comparable to French and in contrast to English, German or Chinese, Italian is a largely centralized, monocentric language. Standard Italian is based on the Tuscan dialect as Tuscany and its major city Florence was at its economic and cultural peak at the time of the codification of Italian language.
Local dialects and regional varieties can be strong (with Neapolitan being largely unintelligible to speakers of standard Italian) but there is only one correct variation of standard Italian. However, in all Italian-speaking regions standard Italian is used for official and educational purposes and in media.
