As descendant of Corsicans I think they are delightful and unique. They have been at time French and at other times Corscians. I love to see the resurgence of their language and music. But, more than anything the are Corsicans, much in the same way that Puerto Ricans are Puerto Ricans, even though we are de jure US citizens.
Some of my fondest memories are going to Juana Díaz for Ephiphany to the house of my great uncle Virgilio (whose name I misspeled in the previous message). All the realtives would get together and there was a wonderful feeling of family and union throght some mystical island named Corsica. Before I die I will have to go to the Cap Corse where they all come and see its wonderful landscape and breathe its air, maybe I will undestand myself a bit more. I like Corsicans and many time when I am in one of those momentts when things have to be done, no matter what I feel Corsican.
By the way, are you related to Amarilys Negroni? Her mother Divina Carlo was a very good freind of my mother.
Best wishes, Marifé Vallecillo
