- 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 Nordo-Mediterranean
This is a classical pan-Italian type, very common in Liguria, Nice and Corsica in France. As usual, lighter individuals (typical Italian aqua-blue eyes, ...) are not rare at all. Arched nose are common.
Larger-faced and more angular individuals are found.
As you can notice, Nordo-Mediterranoid types are outrageously prevailing in Genoa : here's another series noted for a less pronounced dinaromorphic character (a rather straight and puffy nose). Those is a basic Mediterranean phenotype.
- Type 2 : Intermediate complexion, brachymorphic, round face, rather straight nose, wide set eyes
Softer-featured brachymorphic individuals are oddities in Genoa. Those very exemples all more or less lean towards Mediterranoid metrics. One has to conclude that typical Alpinoid types found in Imperia and French Provence are virtually absent in this part of Liguria.
