My ancestry documents:

Ancestry dot com showed this as a huge semicircle with Florence, Italy at the center, a radius going east from Estonia down to the south, however, not west of Florence in origin, only in progeny moving toward western Europe at a later time.

I can actually find traits in my parents that relate to their lives, addictions and skills! Near Florence is the city Siena https://www.discovertuscany.com/siena/palio-siena.html where one of the first known horse races ever started.

'...The Palio horse race has its origins in the distant past, with historical records indicating horse races in Siena already taking place in the 6th century.' My father was addicted to betting the horses for as long as I knew him, almost 70 years!
