    Probably they were an Italic people originally.

    More properly the Ladins became Germanic through considerable intermarriage with the German settlers to that region.

    They seem to get along well with the German speaking people of the Tyrol region.

    They are not Germanic, they are a mix of ethnic groups.

    Who exactly these people were is difficult to say. Were they Illyrians, Etruscans, Celts, Rhaetians? What can be said with certainty is that in around 15 B.C. the various peoples of the Central Alps, all speaking different languages and belonging to different races, were subjected and forcibly united into the new Roman province Rhaetia by Drusus and Tiberius, stepsons of the Roman emperor Augustus. The following period of colonialisation by Rome, with the influx of soldiers, merchants, officials, new settlers and later of messengers of the faith saw the introduction of Latin, the language of the Roman Empire, into the new provinces.

    I'd place them in the same category with the Finns or the French people. Interaction with Germanics has influenced them, so they are closer to Germanics than other people.

    Ladin people

    Hmm, the bumpy hats and costumes remind me only a little bit of the Black Forest costumes.
