First of all, welcome to the forum! :-)
Do you can provide more details about your grandfather and his family (wife, children, parents...)?

Marcello there are abpout 7,000 immigrants from Italy who landed at NYC with the surname BRESCIA. Just thought this will help your orientation. Peter

Peter Timber, you may avoid this sarcastic comment. I don't need any orientation from you. I was just asking for additional information to be useful to begin a search, which as you know is impossible to begin just starting from a surname only.

Sincere apologies since I really thought I was being helpful. I looked up the Brescia surname in my Italian surname dictionary. Why did you presume that I was being discourteous to you? Mea culpa Peter
