What color are the Italian people?

A range of colors may be found among the Italian people. But generally, the people of the north tend to show lighter colored complexions. Just as generally, the people of the south tend to show darker colored complexions. Those in the center of the Italian peninsula are somewhat in between the extremes or show a mix. Additionally, dark may be quite dark if the Italians in question represent a mix of Italian heritage with one of the peoples of the former Italian colonies. The descendants of those former colonies include the heritage of the Orient in Tianjin/Tientsin, China; and of Africa in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Libya, and Somalia.
