    Being "white" (i.e. Caucasian) is a physiological characteristic and not defined by skin colour. It is defined by the shape and proportion of the major bones and skull. Italians are white. Though stereotypically "olive skinned" many are blonde and blue eyed.

    I think the term for all Mediterranean countries is Olive skinned. They are not quite black but not quite white.

      Sorry but that's nonsense. Italian DNA is no different than other European DNA. You are probably thinking of Italian Americans who are mutts with lots of other ancestry.

    My father in law was from Italy (his mother was from Naples and his father was from Sicily), and he had blue eyes. He certainly considered himself as Caucasian, as a European-American.

    Of course. Anyone who thinks otherwise has never been there and knows nothing about the country.

    No, because most of them aren’t into ‘white’ collar crime. Strictly blue collar crime. They don’t believe in ripping off corporations, etc., that can afford to be ripped off, they like to rip off their friends and acquaintances who can’t afford it. My ex-wife is a perfect example. Pure Italian. Stole more than $40k from her own son. ‘Good Italian Catholic’ criminal scumbag

    Most are. There are also plenty of non-white Italians.

    Only the northern ones

    For a start you cannot define "white" in humans so your question is meaningless. The US Government classifies all Europeans, western Asians and north Africans as "white" so, as Italy is in Europe, Italians are "white" by that classification.

      You realize that no one cares about your 'colorblind' answers that you make on every race-related question.
