Sidney Sachs This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Genetic history of Italy Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: – increases imagination and understanding – improves your listening skills – improves your own spoken accent – learn while on the move – reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKf… You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” – Socrates SUMMARY ======= The genetic history of the current Italians is greatly influenced by geography and history. The ancestors of most Italians are identified as Italic peoples (of which the most notable are the Latins/Romans but also Umbrians, Sabines and others) and it is generally agreed that the invasions that followed for centuries the Fall of the Roman Empire did not significantly alter their gene pool because of the relatively small number of Germanic or other migrants compared to the large population of what constituted Roman Italy.Multiple DNA studies confirmed that genetic variation in Italy is clinal, going from the Eastern to the Western Mediterranean (with the Sardinians as outliers in Italy and Europe) and that all Italians are made up of the same ancestral components, but in different proportions, related to Mesolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements of Europe. In their admixture ratios, all Italians are similar to other Southern Europeans, and that is being of Early Neolithic Farmer ancestry, with the Southerners being closest to Greeks (as the historical region of Magna Graecia bears witness to), the Northerners closest to Spaniards and southern French, and the central Italians occupying their own unique cluster between the two. The only exceptions are the Sardinians, who form a distinct isolate of their own, and certain northeastern Italian populations (mostly from the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia) who cluster with Germanic and Slavic speaking Central Europeans from Austria and Slovenia.There is a noticeable genetic difference between Sardinians, Northern Italians and Southern Italians. People from the North seem to be close to the French population, while those from the South overlap with Balkan and other southern European populations. Yet, the genetic distance between Northern and Southern Italians, although pretty large from a single European “nationality” point of view, is only roughly equal to the one between Northern Germans and Southern Germans. The genetic gap between Northern and Southern Italians is filled by an intermediate Central Italian cluster, creating a continuous cline of variation down the peninsula and the islands (with Sardinians as outliers) that mirrors geography.Molecular anthropology found no evidence of significant Northern geneflow into the Italian peninsula over the last 1500 years. On the other hand, the bulk of Italian ethnogenesis occurred prior to Germanic or non-European invasions. DNA studies show that only the Greek colonization of Sicily and Southern Italy had a lasting effect on the local genetic landscape.

There are tens of millions of people, possibly more, in the United States who have Italian ancestors, and even more in other parts of the world, especially Italy itself. The Italian language is a rich and descriptive one, and it has—as one might expect—equally rich and descriptive (and sometimes just plain intriguing) surnames. Knowing the history and meaning of your own Italian surname, or that of an ancestor can tell you a lot about that particular branch of your family tree, even going back to ancient times.
