My dad was light skinned w/green eyes. I am also what I call pale and puicky. Whatever. The Italians in my family have hair ranging from red to black and a lot inbetween. As I was told by someone on this forum, a lot of folks from other countries marched across or occupied Italy over the centuries so we are all a great big mix.

The mongoles occupied Europe and Russia for over 500 years. Look around those countries and you will find many people with oriental traits.

Yes there are many different looks of Italians, not just the typical dark hair and dark eyes. Ive seen pale and dark skin, blue eyes up to black, red hair and freckled all the way up to jet black hair. I was just recently mistaken for a lebanese person! My point is there are many mixes and a person who is 100% Italian can look 100% Irish, lol!

I don't think you can tell someone's heritage just by looking at him. However, I come from a familyof pale, freckled, blonde, red-headed blue and green eyed Italians on one side, and olive skinned, dark hair and brown eyed Italians on the other. Let me tell you those blue eyed genes come through generation after generation.

My aunt was blonde with blue eyes and my mom claimed her grandfather had red hair.

I am half sicilian and half napolitano and my skin is very light. My hair and eyes are dark, but I sunburn.

I look at the pix. I would believe the guy. He could very well be Italian.

A question from a non-native English speaking guy...

The subject of this topic is "Is my BF lieing?"

Is lieing correct or should it be spelled lying?

Lying would be correct.

Lying:

v. - Present participle of lie.

adj. - Disposed to or characterized by untruth: a lying witness.

my mother has natural red/auburn hair and her sister was blond with blue eyes. She is half Calabrese and half from the north (Belluno)

I'd say it's very possible!

My mom was fair skinned with hazel eyes-both her parents were born in southwest Sicily. She used to ride the train into Manhattan with a German born woman who lived in her apt building. Neighbors mistook them for sisters.

I think it could be true. My father was a good deal darker then my mother was. My Fathers Mother Lena Nigrelli was on the lite side with sky blue eyes and she was from Sicily.

Hi, just wanted to point something out. Cremona is in Northern Italy (Lombardy), and while, as many others said, there are Southern Italians with light skin, hair, etc., this is more common in the North.
My Italian surnames:

Caserta: Maietta, Rossano, Tessitore, Negro, Peluso, Musone

Campobasso: D'Andrea, Barile

Catanzaro: Fiorelli/Fiorillo, Romito

I have a cousin who is 100% Italian, and she has red hair and blue eyes, and very light skinned with freckles. She has a sister and three brothers and all of them have dark hair and dark eyes. She is the only one in the family with this, so when her mother (my aunt) used to visit Italy she used to take her with her, because she's the only one in the entire family that has it, so yes, it's very possible, especially is he's only 1/4 Italian.
