Of course the last name is italian, but thats common in our part of the world..Look at any Argentinian Team's line-up and you're bound to count at least 1/2 of the players with italian last names.
NN....thxs for the Chilean Site.
You are right Nasty Nick in that there weren't that many Italian headed to Central America, but there were a few. But in Latin America there are tons of Italian inmigrants. Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Venezuela and Chile have some big Italian communities. There are also sizable communities in Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay, Colombia, Mexico and some parts of Central America.
