It's inexcusable to include Croatians and Germans, and to think you can capture the variation of any Italian province with one sample. What makes it worse is that these are Italians.

Why Davidski didn't include Emilia Romagna in what he released I have no idea. If the authors didn't want to release them then likewise I don't get it. Did they use substandard samples?

You can't test the work of another group unless you have access to all the samples. How is anyone supposed to try to replicate their analysis?
Not even a sample was release from Piedmont.
