Yes that is all very excellent information in my opinion. The villanovan culture in Italy may have been the first arrival of Celtic R1b people's to Italy,thus showing that these "Germanic" people's similar to French and Swiss Gauls such as Helvetti, where already present on the italian peninsula long before the introduction of French Gauls to northern Italy. This may imply that the original Latin founders of the Roman Empire where in fact, as is seen in Italy today, predominantly R1b men and of the U-152 subclade mixed with later arrival Neolithic elements (J2a of the Turkish Etruscans, who according to Herodotus, migrated from Lydia, Turkey, to north-central Italy roughly from modern day Tire district near Izmir turkey). J2 was also brought in later by the greek colonization s of southern Italy, ( Magna Grecia) along with some haplogroup E. later migrations also saw some E coming to Italy directly via North Africa (Tunisia) to Sicily and low percentages and Some J2 arriving in Middle Ages from Jewish diaspora groups. The haplogroup E that arrived in Italy via Greece is hypothesized to have predominantly arrived in Greece via Egypt then the Middle East/levant coast, then Greece, then Italy. It is my belief that the Italic R1b men that arrived from the alps and the Halstatt culture held the same haplogroup AND subclade of R1b as the men that would move further west from the main Halstatt core area and found the la tene culture near the Meuse,Moselle , Loire area of north eastern France. Subsequently, later migrations of these similar la tene Gauls that did not proceed directly from Halstatt area through alps of Italy hundreds/thousands of years earlier to become Romans, some of these "proper" franco-Swiss Gauls would ALSO migrate to northern italian peninsula and further bolster the R1b U-152 levels even higher , regardless of the tensions and wars every now and then over land and resources between these "different" French Gauls and the Latini Romans proper, who was to me, the same thing.
