Piedmontese is the vernacular language of the area even though a form of Alpine Provençal is spoken in the Alpine valleys bordering Provence in France.
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Light pigmentation, light eyes ("aqua blue"), brachymorphic, little and large low-rooted nose, wide set eyes, large jaws
This the archetypal Piedmontese phenotype. It's abundantly found in neighbouring Alpine Provence as well. A darker series :
- Type 2 : Dark complexion, dark eyes, leptomorphic, narrow face, long and straight high-rooted nose nose, close set eyes, pointy chin
This phenotype is quite dominant on the Ligurian coast and around Nice in France : it's fairly "Italian-looking" whatever that means. A less archetypal and more robust series :
A rarer depigmented variant that would be named "Nordoid" amongst some sectors :
