Are Italians Latins?

Yes, we are. In fact, Italians are the MOST Latin descended from the Romans who SPOKE Latin. The French, the Spaniards, the Portuguese and all Central and South Americans are also Latins. Interestingly enough, the "Miss Latin Beauty Pageant" which airs on TV in Europe was won a few years ago by Miss France. Not a typo. Miss FRANCE won the Miss Latin contest.
