    Florence (in northern Tuscany) is sort of on the border between North and Central Italy. Tuscany (at least south of the Arno) is usually considered Central Italy.

    Is the same true for southern Europeans (Spaniards, Greeks, South Italians)?
    They usually look a lot less like your Germanic ideal than these two.

    Hard to say. Judging from the pictures, General Antranik would fit well almost anywhere in Europe or West Asia. I have read about him, and he was a very brave man indeed.
