One of my best friends is from Sicily but he has white skin, blond hair and blue eyes, he has norman ancestors?

He looks exactly like a german boy, a boy from Scandinavia or from Russia, but he is sicilian! He is very tall, with white skin, blond hair and blue eyes. In a lot of books i read that in Sicily during Medieval ages there were normans, so he has norman ancestors?

    Yes, he clearly takes after distant Scandinavian ancestors, who were also ancestors of Normans. Sicilians and Italians generally come in all kinds of colours, including redheads.

    Or he has ancestors who in the last millennium have moved to Sicily.

    Could be. Basically your reading of history is more or less correct.

    More like Visigoths. They invaded the Roman Empire and eventually settled in Spain.
