    As he said in an interview, his paternal grandparents where from Porto Recanati, Italy.

    50% of people living in Buenos Aires have at least an Italian (full blooded, from Italy) grandparent.

    Here http://noticias.centroapuesta.com/article+storyid-... you can find the interview, in original Spanish language.

    Messi got Spanish ctizenship in 2005, though.

    His nationality is Argentine, but his ancestors immigrated to Argentina from Italy. Many players who were born in Argentina have an Italian heritage: Zanetti, Cambiasso and Camoranesi are just a few of them.

    Messi was born on 24 June 1987 to the south of Rosario, in the province of Santa Fe, Argentina, to parents Jorge Horacio Messi, a factory worker, and Celia María Cuccittini, a part-time cleaner. His paternal family originates from the Italian city of Ancona.

    Many argentines come from european ancestry. For example I am argentine but my family is from France, my last name is Eurite.
