A while back I was paging through the lyric book of Andrea Bocelli's "Sogno" album, and I noticed something I hadn't before; these lyrics:

Ammore mio
Si nun ce stess’o mare e tu
Nun ce stesse manch’io
Ammore mio
L’ammore esiste quanno nuje
Stamme vicino a Dio
Ammore
Ammore mio
Si nun ce stess’o mare e tu
Nun ce stesse manch’io
Ammore mio
L’ammore esiste quanno nuje
Stamme vicino a Dio
Ammore


I know the rest of the song ("O mare e tu") is in Portuguese, but what language is this? It's very similar to Italian, I can understand it without a problem, but spelling differences and the use of "j" alerted me that it isn't actually Italian, as I had previously assumed having only paid half-attention to that song.

Thanks in advance!
