If you are part Italian Can you consider yourself Italian?

Do you know at least a little bit of the Italian language?

Do you you a little bit about Italy history and culture?

Do you know we don't eat spaghetti and meatballs in Italy? Have you ever been in Italy or do you plan of visiting it?

Most importantly do you feel Italian?

If so, I think you can consider yourself Italian.

Genes don't matter, is how you feel, how you live, how you think and what you know which is important. Otherwise immigration and integration wuold never work
