    Mars, I'm absolutely the last person that should be asked a question like this, because everybody looks Italian to me!

    Or rather, let's say that I can usually think of some Italian I've seen who looks like the person in question. Perhaps, given the variety of phenotypes present in Italy I can be forgiven?

    Ed. That was too unresponsive. I would think if he's European he's from southern Europe.

    I'm not going to reveal his exact ethnicity although... I'm waiting for some more answers

    Well, since nobody else "dares" a "guessification", I'd tell you he's italian, 50% northern (ligurian mother) and 50% southern (sicilian father). Which of the two parts of Italy do you think he represents better?

    Sorry, Mars...I've been distracted by a lot of nonsense. I originally wanted to say he looked Italian, but as I mentioned, I've been accused of saying everybody looks Italian. That's why I wimped out and stuck with "southern European".

    That is not a typically southern Italian face to me, and I've been surrounded by them for years, so I would say he looks more northern Italian.

    I think you have misunderstood. It was already established upthread that he was southern European. The question most recently posted by Mars was whether he looked more northern or southern Italian.

    To me, he looks more northern Italian than southern Italian if those are the choices.

    I showed my cousin the picture, and she thought he might be related to him:
