Excerpt from The Correct Pronunciation of Latin According to Roman Usage

Setting aside the consideration of accents, which also have great weight in phonetics, it is quite certain that even during the golden period the language was not uniform for the substrati particularly in the cities along the coasts, in the Lazio district and in upper Italy. Along the coasts, the influence of the Greek was strongly felt, in the Lazio the Etruscan, and in upper Italy the Gallic. The same applies to the Italian language. It is spoken well by all the cultured people of the Peninsula, but their pronunciation differs slightly or to a greater degree according to the region to which they belong. For example: the Tuscan pronunciation of Italian is different from the Roman, and this, again, is quite distinct from the Neapolitan or Sicilian. We have the same condition in America where English is pronounced somewhat differently than in England and where the East, West and South have their indie vidual pronunciations and colloquialisms.

It was previously stated that the Latin pronunciation closest to the ancient is the Roman and therefore to be preferred. May we Offer the following reasons.
