Visual appearance of the language

Certain font were designed to suit certain languages. For instance German needs smaller uppercase letters because of so many capitalized words. I imagine that Bodoni was designed for Italian. We also know international fonts.
Does anybody has a clue, hint or information about some serious literature about this problem.
I am interested in visual characteristics of all official European languages.
Thanks for any suggestion or help.
