Italians nation and ethnic group native to Italy

The Italians are a Romance ethnic group and nation native to the Italian peninsula and its neighbouring territories. Most Italians share a common culture, history, ancestry or language. Legally, all Italian nationals are citizens of the Italian Republic, regardless of ancestry or nation of residence and may be distinguished from people of Italian descent without Italian citizenship and from ethnic Italians living in territories adjacent to the Italian Peninsula without Italian citizenship. The majority of Italian nationals are speakers of Italian, or a regional variety thereof. However, around half also speak another regional or minority language native to Italy; although there is disagreement on the total number, according to UNESCO there are approximately 30 languages native to Italy.


He was born in Ortona in the Abruzzo. He trained in the Liceo Artistico of Giuseppe Misticoni. His younger siblings, Basilio, Michele (1907–1941), and Gioacchino were all painters. Tommaso traveled to Paris in 1909. Their house in Pescara is now the Museo Basilio Cascella. [1]
