I can actually understand why you might think that the Marx brothers were Italian, since Chico Marx had what seemed to be an Italian accent (although Groucho, Harpo, and Zeppo… didn't). But no, they were not Italian. They were Jewish-American. Why then did Chico have that Italian sounding accent? Well, they were comedians, just trying to be funny.
