I do not dispute that anthropologically, genetically, historically, and linguistically, Corsicans are “an Italianate people.” My point is that politically Corsicans do not want to be part of Italy any more that Puerto Ricans want to be part of Spain. My own family originated in Genoa and moved to Corsica in 1523. This is the case of most Corsican families. However, I know of no serious group in Corsica that desires reunification with Italy.

I respect your “wish” but are in a significant minority. As for my “wish,” I would love to see Corsica independent. Independence will not happen either. As you know, the Corsicans rejected a move to give them greater autonomy within the French Republic.
