Northern and Southern Italy

Postby Mucbeani » 02 Jan 2006, 08:26

Where in Italy is the dividing point between north and south. Is it like here in the states where we have the mason dixon line. My family on my mothers side are from Pizzone. Is that considered north or south?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike. You probably have your answer by now, but just in case you do not, my grandfather came from Pizzone. On the ship manifest Pizzone is shown as "southern Italian".

Technically you are both correct...Pizzone, is central Italy although it is at the sothern end of central Italy.
