    Nope, Hispanic means from a Spanish-speaking country. Italian and Spanish are related since they are both Romance languages, but they aren't the same. Same as English aren't German, even though English is a Germanic language.

    Hispanic refers to the Spanish incomers to the south of the American continent. You would not class a Spanish person as 'Hispanic' nor an Italian as such.

    Latina is still located in Italy. The Latins are the people who built the city of Rome. Some Italians are still Latini (note the i).

    Iberia Hispania was a different place in Europe. The Romans conquered the Hispani, they were granted Latin rites by the Julian family.

    None of this has anything to do with mixed people in the Americas.

    They can claim Latinx I think but not Hispanic... only Iberians and Latin Americans are Hispanic.

      @Gino, Portugal was part of Iberia Hispania, they still don't speak one language in modern Spain today. And there were many more over history.
