Well, he has no worries about becoming a king! It will never, and is impossible to ever, happen.

I'd say there is an Italian ethnicity.

You'd better ask your fellow law student. He would say that "italian" is a nationality, not ethnicity.

na·tion·al·i·ty (nsh-nl-t, nsh-nl-)
n. pl. na·tion·al·i·ties
  1. The status of belonging to a particular nation by origin, birth, or naturalization.
  2. A people having common origins or traditions and often constituting a nation.
  3. Existence as a politically autonomous entity; national independence.
  4. National character.
  5. Nationalism.
Not to prolong this discussion since this isn't about race, ethnicity and nationality, but per the definition for ethnicity, I'd say that Italians are an ethnic group with cultural ties. Obviously the word "italian" can also describe nationality. There is some overlap there. Anyway, I won't say anymore about that.

Italian ethnicity exists only in foreign people's view.
Italy became a nation only in 1861, before it was a made up of several little states, that didn't have much trade and cultural exchange. Things started to change a bit with the massive domestic immigration from the South to the more affluent North in the 50's/60's.
I myself am half Tuscan and half Venetian, and I can assure you that there are great differences between these two cultures, as well as somatic types. Venetians are more similar to the Slavs than to the other inhabitants of the Italian paeninsula. Though I inherited Mediterranean colours, when in Moscow, I was the only one in my group to be mistaken for a Russian

The trio's father had typical 100% Lombard facial traits, and so had his parents. Besides all surnames ending in "aghi" are typically Lombard surnames such as Biraghi, Colnaghi, Salmoiraghi, Inzaghi a.s.o. You can't find these surnames anywhere else in Italy.

Trouble is that, despite all that foreigners believe, the various Italian populations haven't common traditons, apart from religion.

Moreover there are lots of languages, commonly called dialects or vernacular languages, spoken in each province/region/city. I.e. when I go to another city, that's only 20 km from where I live, the "dialect" changes and it gets hard to understand what people there say.

Ask Giaga, who's of Milan, what she does have in common with a Roman, or a Venetian, let alone a Neapolitan or a Sicilian. If you reverse Italy's map, you'll find that the southernmost tip of Italy stretches as fas as Denmark! No wonder there are many "nationalities" inside our country. How many are there in the area stretching from Switzerland to Denmark?

I think you are fully right, he can not be a king

Exactly - in Monaco, he'll only be Prince since it's a Principality - not a kingdom.

Remember the Halloween-type pictures from Mexico (although, I think that was a New Year's Eve party)?! I'm not sure what they're wearing in this pic, but I'm sure whatever party they attended was fun.

They both look cool there. I can't figure out the costume though. I wish it is possible to know somehow, or someone here might be able to guess it. Tatiana is ravishing with the "up" do. She has a rather nice pair of legs too.

He DOES look scary....rather like he's wearing eye makeup that has smudged....weird, but that's the point of Halloween costumes!
