. . again , concerning the racial history of Italy . .
Still , many seem to think of "Italians" as "darker peoples" ..
I cannot blame them in a way because all they know are the "darker" types , mainly from Sicily . .
Italy is not really the 'darker people'-conglomerate many think of it as ..
Examples . .
'Zucchero' , Italian blues musician , from Emilia-Romagna ( on a side note , often called the Italian Joe Cocker
Jovanotti ( Cherubini ) ( see first vid ) , Roman citizen of Tuscan origin . .
Giovanni Trapattoni - soccer trainer from Lombardy . .

The leading heads of the Renaissance . .
. . all 100 per cent Italian . .
btw , wasn't talking about these guys . .
