- Sample :
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Dark complexion, dark eyes, leptomorphic, narrow face, long and straight high-rooted nose that can get convex, close set eyes, large jaw, pointy chin
~ Dinaromorphic Mediterraneans
This type belongs to very classical pan-Italian type already identified in many Italian provincie. Curiously enough, as far as my sampling techniques are concerned, the autochtonous inhabitants of Como are surprisingly dark. Note that other Lombard samples also showed a rather strong proportion of dark individuals in contrast with clichés about Lombardy. Some individuals are less dinaromorphic and show puffier features :
Eventually, lighter Nordo-Mediterranoid individuals proper to North Italy are found.
- Type 2 : Intermediate complexion, brachymorphic, square-box face, little low-rooted nose that can get snub-tipped, wide set eyes
Once more, a very classical type abundantly found throughout the peninsula. Light eyes are not rare in this area.
