Sondrio : Lombardy (Italy)

The area of Sondrio was populated in ancient times by the Ligures and, from the 5th century BC, by the Celts. Formerly an Ancient Roman military camp, today's Sondrio was founded by the Lombards: in their language Sundrium meant "Exclusive property", referring to the status of free men (arimanni) of the holders of the city and the surrounding land.

Deleted : see comments.

  • Final morphotypes :


  1. I'm with Platypus when he talks about the Dinarid tendency of Bergamasks.
    All 3 Lombardy samples are much the same in that sense.
    The Nordo-Dinarids seem, in most cases, just Dinarids of intermediate colouring.

  2. Having seen myself on a picture in this page I'm asking you to remove them immediately since you don't own any permission on the use of it, and this is a serious violation of my rights. If you don't I will report you to the administrators.


  3. There's not such thing as a right to image unless there is libel or commercial profit. There are no administrators whatsoever. Learn more about law before posting your pic on the Internet.

    I'll delete the pic because you ask for it but get informed on your rights beforehands.

  4. you don't have any written permission to use those images, you just grabbed them somewhere and used them, which is a violation on privacy laws.

  5. I'd be curious to know which laws since there's not such thing as international laws or an international court for privacy matters.

    BTW let me enlighten you : in law you have to prove three elements, a fault, a prejudice and a link between both :

    - There's no fault : you were the one publicy posting this pic on the Internet, there is no attack on your privacy. I'm not the one who should control your own privacy.

    - There's no prejudice : you're not being identified, you're not being libelled, you're just part of a random artistic collage. Add that I deleted the pic as soon as you asked me to.

    For all these reasons, I can only advise you to stop trying justifying your own errors in relation with your use of the Internet.


I've chosen to let people comment freely on my posts. Nevertheless, you'll lose your time taunting me and calling me a fascist (which I'm really not) : I pray you to read my introduction which will reassure that my intentions genuinely aim at achieving amateurish knowledge. I understand that you may not share my passion for the history of the peopling of the World, just don't let me know as clear conscience gained by bashing a humble documentary work is useless.
