Seriously, Im like 100% Italian, and im tall but everyone in my family is short. I'm 6'2, my cousin Nick is like 5'4 and my cousin Vito is like 5'1. My dad is on the taller side 5'10 but still, my grandfather was only 5'2, and my grandmother is only 4'10 so I'm not surprised how short I am. I was just wondering if anyone knew the gene pool if it is different from Southern to Northern or anything like that. I am 20 right now, so I might grow another inch but i doubt it. Im not mad about italians being short or nothing, but in addition to my first question does height have anything to do with jobs or relationships, just curious.

Well with Italians the genepool IS different from north to south.
The north was conquered & settled by the Lombards - a Germanic tribe (srs), why northern italians are fair more often & larger.
The south was not Lombard territory & conquered later by the moors, different racial stock entirely mixed with them.Misc Aussie Crew
