I thought you were Irish just be looking at ya but its nice to see that your actually Italian and i guess half mutt LOL LOLGrandparents on father's side emigrated from Florence and Pisa. Family name Patriacco, shortened to Patrick. Everyone thinks I'm f'n Irish.
My mom's a mutt. So I'm half Italian/half mutt.
Dated a full Sicilian girl in Wisconsin, all of 5' tall, her dad was a tailor. Mama could could cook, baby!
It's like North vs. South here. Anything South of Napoli, my Aunt had some choice words. I haven't been, so I can't comment. She was always Napolidan this and that. I don't know if it's as peaceful as USA.Italian born and raised. I was a teenager when I came to the USA.
Not sure that I would say that Sicilians and Italians are different. That just propagates an old stereotype which may turn some people off.
It's like saying that NY'ers are different than Texans.
Are they different? Yes. But they are more alike than different.
