Christopher Columbus should be part of the Italian Roots project and the Notables Project.

Sharon, if you have pre-1500 cert, can you add the Italian Roots template to Columbus and relevant members of his lineage?
He's already a notable and I put a public comment there and asked to add the Italian Roots template to his profile. I can't edit it
Thank you Andreas West!

Sharon
Well is not completly accepted Columbus was italian (exist different theories) and all the descendents of him are Spanish, the the italian root is a little weak (I think only exist a little of records about the possible father, mother and brothers and sisters not more than that)

Cristobal Columbus is one of the biggest misteries in the Spanish Genealogy.
His being a citizen of Genoa qualifies him.
Ok Michael Maranda! Thank you for the aclaration! Maybe someone can put in references something about the different theories of where is buried or where is from...
Those theories are strongly discounted. Provide evidence that suggests there is some validity to them.
The primary identity for the time period would be Genovese - it's just held under the umbrella of Italian Roots in a cultural/linguistic sense of shared heritage.

I'm totally interested. I have an ancestor that has a "Fontanarosa" surname, and is from Chiavari, just as the mother of Colombus.
