    That my great grandmother’s great-grandmother is Italian
    For those who do not know, there were notorious Italian immigrants in Brazil

    Her full name is Morena Silva de Vaz Setta Baccarin. Only Baccarin is surely a northern Italian surname. Setta is a southern Italian surname from Abruzzo. De Vaz is surely a Portuguese surname, not Italian. And Silva can be either a Portuguese/Spanish or North Italian surname.
