Italian is often thought of as the language of theatre and opera. The truth is that Italian as we know it is based on the writings of Dante Alighieri who mixed southern Italian languages, especially Sicilian, with his native Tuscan in his epic poems, known collectively as the Commedia, in the first years of the 14th century. Dante's popular works were read throughout Italy and his written dialect became the basis of a language that all could understand.
