Italy has an east-west extension of 11.4 degrees of longitude. Given the country's location in Southern Europe, this corresponds to about 960 kilometers. With this still relatively small extension, the course of the sun is only slightly different at various positions in the country. The position of the sun in the west of the country differs from that in the east by only about 46 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 46 minutes later in the west than in the east.
