    Hmm interesting, are there people who look like him in Sicily ? I've never been there so I don't know.

    And I don't know the ethnicity of this guy, so I guess we'll take what the majority says eh ?

    I'd say he looks North African. Tunisian, Moroccan, even Egyptian perhaps. Sicilian, really? The Sicilians I've seen are nothing like that, but I know few of them.

    What I know of this guy is that he was thought to be Somali or South Asian by some people

    Maybe they weren't serious when they classified him

    I would agree, that or maybe a Yemeni.

    I've never seen a Sicilian who looks like that, much less any other Italians, and I know hundreds of them.

    These are a pretty good cross section of the ones I know.



    Students from a small town outside Palermo who were helped by the Zimbardo foundation:


    Some famous Sicilians who came immediately to mind:


    Luigi Lo Cascio


    Robert Loggia:


    Luca Parmitano-astronaut


    Andrea Camilleri-author


    Falcone and Borsellino-heroic Sicilian prosecutors executed by the Mafia





    This is about as "exotic" as it gets: Francesco Scianna


    Giuseppe Fiorello:


    Yet, his brother:


    Sicilian women can range from this...Maria Grazia Cucinotta




    To this...Giusy Buscemi


    Obviously, these are both actresses. Not all Sicilian women are as beautiful as Giusy Buscemi. A lot of Sicilian women are very brunette yet more beautiful than Cucinotta, imo.

    I've never seen a Jew who looks like him except perhaps Yemeni Jews, and there's controversy as to how much Jewish ancestry they actually have.

    Samaritans, who are pretty close, are very different.

    Seems like some t-roll put this out there, particularly as he didn't reveal the actual ethnicity.

    When people don't reveal the actual ethnicity and a link to check it, it's usually a big red flag.

    Based on the modeling, Yemeni or perhaps some Bedouin like people in the Sinai might be right.

    I've always wondered whether I'm a tr0ll or not.

    I know I'm honest, in tr0lling ? this duality is a gift from the green god of primordial darkness.

    I don't know what game some of you think you're playing, but I'm not amused.

    Please let's not pretend there's not a cottage industry out there posting the most exotic Sicilians they can find and then saying all Sicilians look like some Middle Eastern or even Indian or God knows what other nationality. NONE of it is done honestly or with good intent. I don't know who you think you're kidding.

    Some Sicilian phenotypes overlap with some phenotypes from Turkey or the Middle East. There's nothing unexpected about that or offensive in pointing it out. Most don't. There's a lot of variation in Sicily, as I tried to show.

    @Ironside,
    Please repost the pictures, preferably as imgur shots so they don't disappear again. I'd like to take a shot at finding out who he is.

    You didn't find it odd that the person who has his pictures AND his gedmatch results won't tell you his actual nationality? Pretty t-rollish behavior, wouldn't you say?

    If you didn't want my reaction you shouldn't have sent me a pm requesting my participation.

    @Lenab,
    The first two pictures indeed look like Sicilians, some of the models don't. How do you know they're Sicilians?


    Franco Battiato:



    I didn't think of him, probably because the original subject looked so dark. There is some similarity. Is whomever started this happy now? Mission accomplished?
