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. Specimens of Aurignacian age were discovered in the cave of Fumane and dated back about 34,000 years ago.
During the Magdalenian period the first men from the Pyrenees populated Sardinia.
During the Neolithic farming was introduced by people from the east and the first villages were built, weapons became more sophisticated and the first objects in clay were produced.
Washington DC, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Dallas, Detroit and San Francisco in USA. The genetic history of the Italians is greatly influenced by the geography and history.Multiple DNA studies confirmed that genetic variation in Italy is clinal going from the Eastern to the Western Mediterranean (with Sardinians as outliers) 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.Feel free to have a click on some of our featured members and check out their micro-profiles.The micro profiles will allow you to read a little more about that member and see a few more pictures.[_descriptive_paragraph] = Donald Trump wants you to think that “regulation“ is a dirty word.
