Hi and welcome to the forum,

Here is a site that will tell you where in Italy the name is found.

http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html

As you can see the name is dominant in Northern Italy. Do you know anything else about your ggrandfather? Possible birth date, first name, other siblings? Where he first immigrated to? Date of immigration?
