    Funny that the oldest comments just can’t accept that she is very hairy. It is just Italian genetics. She embraces it. Beautiful woman even with treasure trail. There is no denying it. Sorry if that hurts Italian girls here.

      You can deny whatever you want..but reality is reality. The bloodlines are mixed and dark/hairy genes are now with your women.. I live around NYC and tons of emigration from Italy over last two hundred years. Sure, mostly from Campagna/Calabria/Sicily etc but still part of the boot. I dated enough girls with Italian parrents/grandparrents etc. The mustaches, arm hair and abundant dark hair nether regions were just facts. Even the women have to laugh at their own hairiness. Alyssa is a hairy beauty and Italians bring hair wherever they go. South Americans were not hairy. The brazilian tribes had almost none. A few generations of Italians and entire region changes to super hairy. Don’t believe me – look at Buenos Aires. 65% claim some Italian lineage and a study of body hair tells what we all knew about Italy’s genes.

        I am not Italian. Here is US, they eat pasta, bread and debate best pizza. They eat canolis and limoncello for desert. They listen to Andrea Bocelli. They talk with their hands and say ‘Forgetta abow it”. Their women has thick, dark curly hair all over. Italians in America. We love them here. Alyssa is bellissima

    She is likely part Jewish. Milano is usually a Jewish surname in Italy.

    Many Italians consider themselves to be non-white

    • Yesterday says:

      Many Italians are wrong, unless they actually have non-white ancestry to back that up and not simply Italian ancestry.

    • coco says:

      Lol Majority of Italians check “white” on the US Census so you’re wrong. Only a minority of Italian Americans think they’re “not white” because they’re tan lol Sure Southern Europeans can look swarthy, but there are also many pale Southern Europeans. For example, if you take a trip to Italy or watch the Italian football teams game… you’ll see many pale Italians that don’t look that different from other Europeans.

        Your comments are out of control. I wish we could block people on this site so we don’t have to see this nonsense!

          Addition information: Paternal grandfather was Thomas R. Malano (1904) (NY) the son of Italian parents Raffaele Malano and Pasqualina Maria Malano. no additional information on Connie Milano.
          Maternal grandfather: John Bernard Ronzo (1918-1982) the son of Anthony Ronzo and Antonetta Marmorello.
          Maternal grandmother: Helen Galea, who was the daughter of Girolamo Galea and Maria Riccio. Girolamo and Maria were both from Calabria, Italy. Maria was the daughter of Giuseppe Riccio and Teresa Marra. Calabria should be added as a tag.

            So “Malano” was the original family name?

            Do you have record links? Found nothing.
