Answer on Could Maria Montessori be considered a hispanic person?

Maria Montessori is not hispanic. My mom is a Director in one of the Montessori schools and we had to look for all kinds of information about her. Montessori is originally from Italy. Hispanic and Latin is not the same thing. Latin comes from the ancestors of Italy, Rome and Spaniards in Europe. Thats why Spaniards are not considered hispanics, they are European. Hispanics are roots of a mixture races of African, Native Indians and European from Spain, but not what people will call a " pure european breed". So, please look up more information from biographies of people instead of giving false information.
