Sono d’accordissimo con Robhur. Evidentemente tu sei più preoccupato delle “regole” di questa presunta enciclopedia (e tra l’altro una geniale enciclopedia con tali illuminati articoli) che di quello che scrivono, e visto che a te sta bene quella geniale sezione evidentemente ti piace anche essere considerato un terrone e sei d’accordo che tutti lo scrivano e lo leggano pubblicamente, bravo, complimenti.


Hello anonymous. I know enough Italian to fully read this previous post and your reply to him. As one of southern Italian ancestry, I must tell you I admire- and fully support!- your mission to counter the illogical, mainstream views people have of the south, especially within Italy itself. I too am proud to be meridionale (although I don't like "terrone", since it was coined maliciously by northerners) and I am never ashamed of where I came from. In Canada, where I live, the Italian population is more recent than in the US (mostly 1950s to early 70s) and is much more evenly distributed between north and south (I would say 50-50). The vast majority of the northerners are from the Veneto and Friuli, but I've come to know very recent transplants from Turin and Milan as well (business related). I cannot support your attempt to split the population based on appearance alone, since only the frequency of these attributes varies. It is impossible to tell who is northern and who is southern based on the physical attributes; only the odds of guessing go up or down. As a sidebar, let me tell you there are many, many French Canadians here (most trace their roots to Normandy) that can pass as Calabresi, if we are to stereotype appearance. And more than a few Calabresi that can pass as Germans (like me). Having said that, I would encourage you to help balance the many articles that suffer from stereotypes of the Italian south. I think this is eneregy better spent. Cheers, Dionix (talk) 18:57, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
