    Technically the Sicilians are not a “sub-set” of Italians being Sicily very close to the mainland.

    On the contrary Sardinians are much more isolated:

    Are Sardinians a sub-set of Italians like Sicilians, or are they their own seperate ethnicity like how Catalans are seperate from the Spanish?

    Sardinian people are not Italian! They are very isolated genetically, but closest to Iberians. Corsicans, on the other hand, are Italian (Tuscan).
