Catalonia is an autonomous community of the Kingdom of Spain, located on the northeastern region of the Iberian Peninsula. It is politically designated as a nationality by its Statute of Autonomy. Catalonia consists of four provinces: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, and Tarragona. The capital and largest city in Catalonia is Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain.
Catalonia comprises most of the territory of the former Principality of Catalonia, with the remainder now part of France’s Pyrénées-Orientales. Catalonia is bordered by France and Andorra to the north, the Mediterranean Sea to the east, and the Spanish autonomous communities of Aragon to the west and Valencia to the south. The official languages are Catalan, Spanish, and the Aranese dialect of Occitan. Catalonia has a total population of more than 7.5 million people.
Veneto or Venetia is one of the twenty regions of Italy. The population of Veneto is about five million people, ranking fifth in Italy. The capital and largest city in Veneto is Venice. Veneto is the 8th largest region in Italy. It is located in the north eastern part of Italy and is bordered to the east by Friuli Venezia Giulia, to the south by Emilia-Romagna, to the west by Lombardy, and to the north by Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol and Austria.
Veneto was part of the Roman Empire until the 5th century AD. Later, after a feudal period, it was part of the Republic of Venice until 1797. Venice ruled for centuries over one of the largest and richest maritime republics and trade empires in the world. After the Napoleonic Wars and the Congress of Vienna, the Republic was annexed by the Austrian Empire, until it was ceded to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866 as a result of the Third Italian War of Independence. Besides Italian, most of the inhabitants in Veneto also speak Venetian.
