Latin America Region of the Americas where Romance languages are primarily spoken

Latin America is a group of countries and dependencies in the Western Hemisphere where Romance languages such as Spanish, Portuguese, and French are predominantly spoken; it is broader than the terms Ibero-America or Hispanic America. The term "Latin America" was first used in an 1856 conference with the title "Initiative of the America. Idea for a Federal Congress of the Republics", by the Chilean politician Francisco Bilbao. The term was used also by Napoleon III's French government in the 1860s as Amérique latine to consider French-speaking territories in the Americas, along with the larger group of countries where Spanish and Portuguese languages prevailed, including the Spanish-speaking portions of the United States Today, areas of Canada and the United States where Spanish, Portuguese and French are predominant are typically not included in definitions of Latin America.

Recently Mariana did another major role in Amor Sin Condiciones, a remake of the successful soap opera Secreto de Amor which was produced in 2001 by Venevisión and Fonovideo in Miami.

Besides working her second album, Mariana is recording a new series for TV Azteca called Se Busca un Hombre. It began on February 12, 2007 at 8:30pm on Azteca 13.
