    There’s certainly a lot to find out about this subject. I really like all the points you’ve made.

    I’m not Italian, but let them have their fun. The Chines and the Vikings made it to the new world long before Italians or Spaniards. Also, those Asians who migrated over through what’s now Alaska a few thousand years farther back. Relax and save anger for more important things.

    Thank you for the entertainment.

    This parade is a revolting spectacle of irrational ethnocentrism which must be judged by the sources. Basic historical sources point to the drama of discovery as being a strictly Hispanic event with Italy and Italians nowhre to be found except now in the clogged mind of mental dwarfs. The caravels which sailed from the port of Palos in August 3rd 1492 were manned by Hispanic sailors from Andalucia while the ships were the property of the Pinzon brothers and the master mariner Juan de la Cosa. The first person to see land was the Andalucian sailor Rodrigo de Triana and not as has been reported Columbus himself. Throughout the subsequent voyages that followed the achievement of 1492 Hispanics were at the vanguard of this European reconaissance and of course in the major explorations which uncovered as they say un nuevo mundo.

    Columbus is a Spaniard who he renounced his Italian citizenship, became a Spanish citizen and his descendants are Spaniards. So why don’t Italians celebrate Galileo, Da Vinci, Joe Piscopo, Gotti, Gambino, Dice Clay or any of their other great paisans, and leave the Spanish alone.
