I you had told my father, grandfather, great-grandfather that they were "Italians," they would have been offended. I remind you that until 1861, there was no "united Italy" and the Italian peninsula was composed of a group of independent city states. One of these city states, Genova, conquered and owned Corsica from 1559 until 1769. In 1769 Genoa (and more specifically The Bank of St. George) ceded its rights over Corsica to France. There was no love lost between the Corsicans and the Genoese. As far as today is concerned, I have visited Corsica often since we still own property in our ancestral village of Rogliano and I can tell you that, although the Corsicans speak French, the Corsicans consider themselves Corsicans first.

Yes, I highly recommend a visit to Capo Corso. More than a visit, it is a pilgrimage.

Preguntabas si conozco a Amarilys Negroni. No la conozco personalmente pero se quien es. Esta casada con Guillermo Feria. Amarilys es la hija de Ivan Negroni Lacroix y Lavinia Carlo Aymat. El bisabuelo Negroni de Amarilys (Pablo Negroni Lluberas) y mi bisabuelo (Andrés Negroni Lluberas) eran hermanos.
