    we are italians or italian?

    the question is trivial as it seems...

    which is correct? does it depend on whether it is an adjective or a noun ?

    thanks

    Yes it would depend on whether it was an adjective or noun.

    A simple statement of nationality, we are all Italians. (noun).

    Or, If you are referring to the characteristics of Italians then we are all Italian (adjective).
