Sardinian ethnicity
The people, language, and culture of Sardinia are distinct from those of neighboring regions; Sardinians preserve an ancient Neolithic European genetic legacy thanks to the relative isolation of the population. Communities of people of Sardinian descent are present in other parts of Europe, including mainland Italy, Germany, and the U.K., and people of Sardinian descent can also be found in Brazil, Argentina, and North Africa. Sardinian culture is distinguished by its colorful traditional clothing, which varies from village to village throughout the island.
