Dear Mr. Ganassi,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
LeHavre, France was a popular Italian emigration port that was used heavily for departures by Italians during the 1800s. This may be due to the ease of obtaining transportation to certain ports due to location of railway lines.
We hope this is helpful.

Thank you for the information. It just seems that they were so close to Genoa that it would have been their port of departure.
