Fun quiz. Boy, some of those are difficult to spell.
Oct 30th, 2008 at 17:12 GMT
Bah, I knew all of these in eighth-grade Italian. Now, not so much.
Oct 30th, 2008 at 17:29 GMT
Thanks to years of playing Diplomacy, many of these were familiar to me. Nothing like sneaking into Marseilles from Piedmont!
Oct 30th, 2008 at 17:42 GMT
When I put in Tuscany, or Piedmont, they came up with the Italian spelling; but, not Sardinia.
Oct 30th, 2008 at 18:09 GMT
Scott: Works for me, either they fixed it already, or you spelled it wrong.
Oct 30th, 2008 at 18:58 GMT
LOL!! I got the islands and then in frustration I started writing Latin names. Erutria? Latium? Magna Graecia?
Comment below threshold:

Own up people. How many of you got Sicilia because of the Godfather?
Oct 30th, 2008 at 21:19 GMT
I can name the cities, not the regions. Ouch. A big 0/20 for me.
Oct 30th, 2008 at 21:42 GMT
As a Slovenian, I'm glad to see that the author of the quiz didn't paint the city of Trst (Trieste) white. :)
Oct 31st, 2008 at 00:15 GMT
Being Italian and a lover of geography, I think this is the greatest quiz of all time.
Oct 31st, 2008 at 00:34 GMT
@abaris: On the other hand, Vinjerac in Croatia is painted white.
Oct 31st, 2008 at 04:26 GMT
yeah, i only got the islands. time to study up on regions. how about one for spain?
Oct 31st, 2008 at 10:51 GMT
@magister: `Erutria' should be `Etruria'. I know it's probably just a typo but I thought I'd mention it as I genuinely believed that Saturn's moon Enceladus was called `Encedalus' until I did the moons quiz the other day. :-)
Nov 1st, 2008 at 17:12 GMT
yeah, I noticed I typed that too. I figured I wouldn't address it unless someone else had. Thanks though! :)
Nov 3rd, 2008 at 01:08 GMT
I'm embarrassed to admit Olive Garden commercials and The Princess Bride were responsible for my only correct answers.
Dec 1st, 2008 at 00:12 GMT
All in 49 seconds! I do live in Italy though so an unfair advantage.
Dec 16th, 2008 at 04:11 GMT
I may be the only guy under 20 in south New Jersey that can name all of these.
Dec 22nd, 2008 at 16:19 GMT
Yay! This is a great quiz, although I too live in Italy so I have a bit more incentive to know them. Thanks for accepting the Italian names and for displaying them as such; I never would have remembered all the English versions.
Feb 18th, 2009 at 22:57 GMT
Look at the map! The city of Trieste is left grey, but it belongs to Italy (Friuli-Venezia Giulia).
Mar 30th, 2009 at 01:45 GMT
ya i got 4
Jun 22nd, 2009 at 14:04 GMT
i keep typing in Friulia instead of friuli
Jul 17th, 2009 at 03:42 GMT
Fun! But shouldn't it accept "Le Marche" as well as just "Marche"? And for consistency's sake, how about accepting "Marches" and "The Marches" as well, since other anglicized forms like Tuscany and Lombardy are OK?
Aug 22nd, 2009 at 19:59 GMT
Great quizz despite difficulties of spelling. What about the same for France, UK, Belgium, Brazil or South Africa ?
Aug 23rd, 2009 at 03:23 GMT
I agree with Melissa that "Le marche" should be accepted. That's how we always referred to it, and I've worked at a kids' camp there the last two summers. In the Italian language, you would never say just "Marche."
Dec 14th, 2009 at 19:41 GMT
It appears that the "Le Marche" problem still hasn't been fixed, because I didn't get it. Any update, @SporcleAdmin?
Feb 25th, 2010 at 09:16 GMT
I'm learning Italian, and i got all the answers on this. So i'm proud of myself! : )
Mar 11th, 2010 at 22:28 GMT
Apr 20th, 2010 at 12:07 GMT
what abouth accepting just "alto adige" or "trentino"?
May 26th, 2010 at 02:07 GMT
Thank you, two semesters of Italian, for 20/20.
Jun 28th, 2010 at 14:12 GMT
Awesome quiz.... I'm ashamed that I only got 15/20.
Jul 5th, 2010 at 02:31 GMT
1/20... :( alls i knew was sicila because michael cera told the jersey shore cast that his father came from there. embarassinggg
Jul 16th, 2010 at 18:25 GMT
Le Marche still isn't accepted, which makes this Marchigiano-Americano sad.
Dec 11th, 2010 at 14:10 GMT
You should allow "Südtirol" for Trentino-Alto Adige.
May 18th, 2011 at 14:26 GMT
I tried "Trentino" and "South Tirol" and neither was accepted. Can they be allowed?
Jun 12th, 2011 at 17:26 GMT
damnit all i tried lombardi, and then i figured it would have some kind of ending, so i typed lombardio and then gave up. damn it all. i was so close.
Oct 15th, 2011 at 12:07 GMT
I there any reason Elba is greyed out?
Oct 21st, 2011 at 14:51 GMT
I visited there for the first time this past July. What a beautiful country! Got to see Palermo (Sicily), Naples, Capri, Sorrento, Pompeii, Rome, and Pisa. I would love to travel back there again someday (and the Trevi Fountain promises to make that happen!).
Oct 21st, 2011 at 16:00 GMT
I knew the islands and Tuscany...
May 6th, 2012 at 18:03 GMT
Please except Val d'Aosta for Valle d'Aosta. You should also take Val(le) d'Aoste as that is how it is in French which is the language spoken there.
Dec 11th, 2012 at 20:58 GMT
Nice quiz, but could you please change the colours of Lombardia and Trentino - Alto Adige? They look the same so it's difficult to see the border
