For the sake of ending this argument, I will agree with you that the people from the Italian peninsula left an indeleble mark in Corsica's history, language, culture etc. However, I know of no serious group in Corsica that would like Corsica to be part of Italy. As you may recall, during World War II Italy attempted to integrate Corsica into Italy. The rebellious Corsicans would have not of that and finally the Italian Army had to call for help from the German Army to pacify the Corsicans. You are probably the exception to the rule, a "Corsican" that wants Corsica to be part of Italy. Are you sure that you are Corsican? We still do not know your last name nor the name of your ancestral village. My Corsican roots can be traced on a straight line to the 10th Century.
