The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Italy covers a boot-shaped peninsula and two large Mediterranean islands in
southern Europe. Northern Italy is highly industrialized and wealthy, while
southern Italy is agricultural and relatively poor. Grapes are the major
agricultural product, and clothing is the leading industrial product. A
booming tourism business is a major source of income.
Italy was the home
of the ancient Roman Empire. After centuries of disunity, Italy united as a
single state in 1870. A republican form of government was established in
1946, but the years since have seen a succession of over 50 governments. In
the 1990's completely inept and corrupt government provoked widespread popular
Italy is mostly Roman Catholic. The center of Catholicism, the
Vatican City, is located within Rome. Most Italians seldom attend church, and
there are few evangelicals.
