What can one answer to the question "di dove sei?"

Hello!
I wonder what one can answer when asked "di dove sei?" I see the question usually responded in my textbook with answers like "Sono di Roma", "Sono di Milano". Does this question mainly mean " which region in this country are you from?" Can one answer" Sono di Americano.", " Sono di Cina?"

For learning: Italian
Base language: English

    se chi te lo chiede ha già capito che sei cinese , ti sta chiedendo di essere più specifico quindi si può rispondere:
    if the person who asks you already understand that you are Chinese, he is asking you to be more specific so we can respond:

    "sono di Pechino"
    "sono di Shanghai"...

    altrimenti potresti dire :
    otherwise you could say:

    "sono cinese"
    "sono canadese"
    "sono italiano"
    "sono americano" (ma sarebbe esatto dire "Sono statunitense" )

    "I'm Chinese"
    "I'm Canadian"
    "I'm Italian"
    "I'm from USA"
