On which language is Italian standard language based?

Sicilian
Latin
Tuscan
Lombardian
Tuscan, specif­i­cal­ly its Flo­ren­tine variety, became the language of culture for all the people of Italy, thanks to the prestige of the mas­ter­pieces of Dante Alighier­i, Francesco Pe­trar­ca, Giovanni Boc­cac­cio and Niccolò Machi­avel­li. It would later become the official language of all the Italian states and of the Kingdom of Italy, when it was formed. Only 2.5% of Italy’s pop­u­la­tion could speak the Italian stan­dard­ized language properly when the nation unified in 1861.
