    Actually Quidaciolu is a Sardinian surname, from Tempio Pausania .. Northern Sardinia near Sassari, check it..And cause you do not condìsider sardinian Italians, you shoukd put that B. Kirny is sardinian, at least of his father side,cause nothing is said about his mom.

      BT the original spelling is Quidacciolu, but it’s the same surname for sure, cause you’ll find Quidacciolu only in Sardinia, and most of them are from Tempio Pausania…BTW Bruno Kirby looks the poster boy for a tipycal sardinian male…

        Quidaciolu is a Sardinian surname indeed.

        His maternal grandmother’s family was from Province of Piacenza, Emilia-Romagna.

        I found nothing about his maternal grandfather, but I think he was Northern Italian as well.
