In Italian grammar the part of the speech is very important. 

  This post about the Italian grammar is for beginners so we’ll start from the NOUN!

It is possible to classify nouns in several ways:

Nouns indicate

a person, animal or thing in general. In this case they are called common names and are written with the first letter lowercase

città, ragazzo, fiume, gatto, canarino

a person, animal or thing in a particular way that distinguishes it; in this way it iswritten with an initial capital letter

Torino, Francesco, Po, Ulisse

Nouns indicate also:

a person, an animal or a real thing,thatyou may see, or hear, or touch; in this case they are called concrete nouns

casa, tavolo, mamma, amico, sole, patata, ossigeno

ideas, concepts, thoughts, feelings called abstact nouns

allegria, amicizia, velocità, paura,vecchiaia

one person or one thing; in this case they are called individual nouns
