    he has an Italiano surname because there’ s a sizeable community of emigrants from Genoa (Liguria) in Gibraltar since the 1500s, hence the reason

      On his paternal “Galliano” line he definitely has an Italian ancestor somewhere further back. He might have distant Sephardi Jewish ancestry, I dunno.
