The people of Southern Italy and Sicily look a lot like the people in Rochester. I’m amazed even though I full well know that it was these areas where many Italian immigrants came from. I enjoy looking around and seeing the beautiful people. People watching here is fun, no doubt! Some of the differences you’ll notice in Southern Italy is the people have darker skin, darker hair, and look like the stereotypical Italian you’d probably imagine. The Northerners don’t have as dark of skin, their hair is generally lighter in color and many have light eyes.
