Occitania (Occitània in Occitan) is a historic region in south-western Europe where Occitan was the predominant vernacular. In the current sense, this term designates the territory in which Occitan (Romance language) has been used since the 20th century until today. Occitania covers most of southern France, the alpine valleys of western Piedmont in Italy, the Val d'Aran in Spain and Monaco, covering an area of around 190,000 km2. It has approximately fifteen million inhabitants, of which approximately 20% are inhabitants born outside the territory.
