Peter Facinelli is an American actor and producer. His parents, Bruna (Reich) and Pierino Facinelli, are Italian immigrants. His father is from Revò and his mother is from Spormaggiore, both of which are in Northern Italy. Peter was previously married to actress Jennie Garth.
The surname “Reich” is of Germanic origin. However, in Peter’s family’s case, it traces back in Italy as far as Peter’s great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, Tomaso Reich, who was born, c. 1606, in Spormaggiore, Trento, Italy.
Peter’s maternal grandfather was Giuseppe Reich (the son of Pompeo Reich and Teresa Vicenza Sartori di Cosotto). Pompeo was the son of Giovanni Battista Reich and Margherita Del Sas di Cavedago.
Peter’s maternal grandmother was Ersilia Eugenia Bottamedi/Bottemedi (the daughter of Bortolo Bottamedi and Maria Catellan).
