by ethnic on April 27, 2009

Place of Birth: Queens, New York City, New York, U.S.

Date of Birth: November 26, 1973

Ethnicity: Italian

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 Trentino, Northern Italy. Peter has three children with his former wife, 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.

Peter’s paternal grandmother was named Corinna.

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).

He’s very white & 100% Italian, yet some idiots still say Italians aren’t white. They’re many dark British, French, German, Dutch, Irish people, but they never say those nationalities aren’t white.
