albanians could have italian and or arab roots

there are a lot of ethnic albanians who were descended from italy

for example REGIS FILBRUN etc

Albanians don’t have Arab roots. Islam is the first religion in Albania because of Ottoman Turks domination, as in Bosnia. This guy has not Arberesche ancestry though.
