    Population changes in northern Italy from the Iron Age to Modern Times

    Agreed. Judging by the genetics of modern Italians, even Northern Italians, the IA Latin ancestry had rather more WHG.

    Population changes in northern Italy from the Iron Age to Modern Times

    Inscriptions under the late Roman Republic/Early Roman Empire (when most genetic change occurred) in Central Italy) together with Pompeii show only the Latin, Oscan and Greek languages. Even graffiti is in Latin.

    Can a Spaniard, Romanian, and Swiss Italian understand Corsican?

    If you read the samples, Standard Italian, Elban Tuscan, North and South Corsican, Sardinian variants, in the Corsican Language Wikipedia article you will find very little that is not Tuscan-like or Sardinian-like. Certainly nothing particularly Iberian.

    Can a Spaniard, Romanian, and Swiss Italian understand Corsican?

    This seems to be the Tuscanized variety of northern Corsica. See the ""Passatempi" section in the Corsican Language Wikipedia article which compares Standard Italian, Island of Elba Tuscan, North and South Corsican and various Sardinian dialects.

    Ligurian (Genoese) is/was spoken at Bonifacio, Calvi and Ajaccio. Look up "Corsican Language" on Wikipedia for categories and examples.

    Can a Spaniard, Romanian, and Swiss Italian understand Corsican?

    I agree with you on all of this. The usual masculine singular noun endings are in -u not in -o as in Standard Italian I would add that northern Corsican around Cap Corse is definitely Tuscanized but without the distinctive "Gorgia Toscana" Corsican surnames are definitely more like those in...

    Italian vs Italian American Sociocultural Comparison

    Indeed. However the most active industrial area (as far as it went) in 1860 was the Naples to Salerno strip and not the Milan-Turin-Genoa Industrial Triangle of today. Some have argued that Italian unification benefited both Northern financiers and big Southern landowners who did not want to...

    Until death do us part

    I believe that Etruscans were basically indigenous but very strongly influenced by the Orientalising culture of the Greek-speaking lands. Certain aspects of Etruscan religion like the haruspices and the god/hero Tarchun (which gave us Tarquinii) must be imports from Anatolia but then...

    Until death do us part

    Did the Etruscans not call themselves RASENNA/RASNA, not that far from the word RHAETUS?

    Until death do us part

    160 inhumations? Surely this is a golden opportunity to study the genetic composition of the La Tene population in the Italian Alps.

    Alexander the Great's FATHER is found.

    The point is why go on about Slavs in the Balkans when they did not enter that region for nearly 1,000 years after Philip and Alexander?
