Piano is a musical instrument that is played upon a keyboard by pressing on the keys with fingers and thumb.  It is short for Pianoforte, an Italian word that means ‘ soft and loud’.  
Piano as such does not originate from any country but was rather developed from harpsichord in many countries.  
But yes, based on the fact that pianoforte is an Italian word and piano invention is credited to an Italian, we can go along the theory that piano indeed comes from Italy and was invented somewhere around the 1700’s.
