Are modern italians the direct ethnic descendants of the Romans?


Modern English are direct ethnic descendants of the Anglo-Saxons, genetically, linguistically, politically, and culturally. The same is true of Scottish and the Dal Riata/Picts, or the French and the Franks, or the Spanish and the Visigoths.

Is the same true of the Italians and Romans? How close is Italian to Latin, and are genetics still the same from in Roman times?

We don't talk about genetics on Historum.
