Italian is a very complex language, for example English uses the article "The" for all the Italian Determinative Articles example:

Il = The
La = The
Lo = The
Le = The
Gli = The
L'= The
I = The

Il Bianco = The White
La Casa = The House
Lo Zoo = The Zoo
Le Scarpe = The shoes
Gli Altri = The others
L'Ombra = The shadow
I Libri = The books

Here

http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/~fkarlsso/genkau2.html

2253 different way to say noun shop. There is over 12000 way to say one word, it can be used as a noun, verb and adjective.

Everything wich changes one word meaning, like a, the, on, in, of, etc. is added behing of word. So "on the shop" would be in Finnish language shoptheon.

My favorite is is ratsastajattaritta. Wich means "without womens who ride with horse".

No, that would be a problem for the search engine, these are uncommon characters on various keyboards; in any case, even on vinyl in the past were ignored the accents perhaps the fault of the record companies.

I was amazed how Finland appreciated Italian songs so much in the '60s. The Italian song but also the Neapolitan dialect in the '40s, '50s and '60s was very well known all over the world, but I didn't know that it was followed also in the Northern European countries.
