Résumé : In this paper, we move from a "proof of concept" to challenging predictions in a flavour model emerging from a single fermion family in six dimensions (6-D) with the two extra dimensions compactified on a sphere. The most striking predictions (beyond the basic ingredients already demonstrated for a realistic quark mass pattern) are for the neutrino sector. Not only can 4-D Majorana masses be generated from 6-D (where no Majorana spinors exist), but Majorana masses are naturally associated to large mixing. The model favours inverted hierarchy and a quasi-Dirac partial suppression of neutrinoless double beta decay. © 2013 SISSA, Trieste, Italy.
