The most famous and long-standing barbarian state of the era of the Great Nations Migration arose in Gaul. Why not in Italy?

Italy became depopulated in the III-IV centuries, when the latifundia fell into decay, and the free townspeople died or died of starvation during the strife. In Gaul, free farmers and colonists, having assimilated the Greco-Roman culture, formed a new Gallo-Roman people and later imposed their culture on the conquerors – the Franks.
