The capital is Roma (Rome); the economic capital is Milano (Milan) in the north.

Italy has won the FootBall WorldCup three (3) times: 1934, 1938 and 1982. Some of world's best FootBall teams come from Italy. The latter include Milan AC, Inter Milano FC, AS Roma, Lazio (also from Rome), Juventus (from Torino) and Fiorentina (from Florence).

Pisa is a beautiful small town in Tuscany, and the tower wasn't built to be leaning, but began leaning soon after they started construction around the thirteenth century.
