    Post Better photos of Southern Italians

    The Sicilians linked to in this thread are a fairly good sampling of the population, but many of the pictures are dark and poor quality, and the effects of tanning on what are mostly young people (many photographed outdoors) can't be underestimated, especially given the sunny Mediterranean climate.

    The best images at the Racial Reality website are the ones of confirmed ethnic-Italian senators. They're all middle-aged men (and a few women) who work in offices, a demographic which Coon singles out as being ideal for determining pigmentation. Also, the pictures were taken by professional photographers under ideal lighting conditions.

    Predominant Phenotype looks to be of the Mediterranean Proper variety, with Alpine and Nordic influences.

    Yes, I would agree with that. But I did notice some "Ladogan" influence in one of the senators. The woman with the colored hair.

    Tronder: "Predominant Phenotype looks to be of the Mediterranean Proper variety, with Alpine and Nordic influences."
    I see very few Nordic influences. Most of those people look to be blends of Alpines and Mediterraneans, which is the racial make-up of southern Italy according to Coon. A few Dinarics can be seen as well, but they're infrequent in the south.


    Polak: "I did notice some "Ladogan" influence in one of the senators."
    That's unlikely since no people of this type have penetrated into southern Italy, and no Uralic genes have been found there. Those influences are probably Cappadocian. Here's what Coon says about that type:

    ...Cappadocian facial features brought from western Asia by early navigators, including the Etruscans. Associated with this type is a frequent obliquity of the eye slits, which are very long....

    Sophia Loren has this appearance:

    Perhaps you are right.

    It looked like a notable minority had light eyes, yet when I went back and counted to attain a definite figure, it appears that only 10 out of 87 do (among the mainland Southern Italians).

    Hair color, although hard to determine do the affects of balding and greying, appears to be predominately dark brown or black.

    Yes, although others may have mixed eyes, which are much more common among southern Europeans than pure light eyes. It's not always easy to determine from photos. But regardless, pigmentation alone doesn't tell us much about subrace. Alpines are frequently light-eyed and light-haired, and even Mediterraneans have a minority tendency toward blondism, especially of the eyes.

    They are what most Europeans are today.. various sub racial blends, exactly what can be expected from Europes long history... I think these pics illustrates very well that no extra European admixture took place at least not in any meassurable amounts...
