Italians look like a half mark between Balkanites and Central Europeans (including some French).

I don't think Europeans lives in zoos at all, perhaps you do.

For your information, light hair maximizes in Northern Europe, but there are also areas in Eastern and Central Europe which are very light-haired. Italy is in Europe's darkest zones in terms of hair color.

Those definitions fit more to slovenians and northern croatians.. Balkanites themselves are more northern group than italians, imposible italians being crossroad betweem them and central euros.

Do you have proof only americans were involved in the creation of this map, I don't think so. When creating it involves more than Americans, because anthropological sources, genetical studies hail from European ones. The red hair map to my knowledge has nothing to do with Americans, is the result of a census on British soldiers coming from all over Britain. Yeah in Wales, red hair varies from 10-15 per cent, so the Welsh are definitely not darker than the Germans as a whole.

Since you like crowds and do no base anything on scientific evidence. Reddish hair is more common among the Irish, blonde among the Danes and black among Italians. This is just a general view.

Irish crowds in Dublin waiting to see the president.



A Danish crowd in Copenhagen



An Italian crowd in Rome

Even in Italy, though the population is universally brunette, meaning with a brunette-white to olive skin complexion, black/very dark brown hair, brown eyes. Northern Italy is still much lighter than Southern Italy, especially in comparison to places such as Sicily and Sardinia. Celts, Germans, Slavs did invade from the north and blended with the Etruscans and whomever they met. Lombards were a mighty Germanic tribe originally from the Baltic region who were probably in alliance with the Goths before invading this country. Italy has rich heritage in culture, language and civilization. A great part our civilization is well based on Graeco-Roman civilization.It was Italy at the time of the Roman Empire which civilized other parts of Europe, notably Western and Northern Europe. Then the Roman Church continued the job to civilize Barbaric tribes of the north such as the Franks, Picts, etc... Only later did Northern Europe took it own initiative after gaining much more knowledge. Many Nordicists, Nazis were ignorant to the fact that European civilization was born in Mediterranean Europe. Highways, bridges, colosseums, canals, irrigation systems were present in Italy well before any northern Barbarians even thought of it. The only difference is that Barbarians were of a militaristic system, therefore were 'born warriors', thus Romans used them as mercenaries in their armies. Many of them settled Northern Italy, this is why fair complexions, light hair, light eyes are more common among Northerners than Southerners. Italians built one of the largest empires in the world.

EVERY single person in the Italian picture you could put into Dublin and people would take them for Irish first - EVERY ONE.
