Is Broccoli Rabe truly Italian or is it...

I was chatting about food and dining with friends at a popular Italian restaurant last night and the subject of Broccoli Rabe (rape) came up...we were comparing notes on this popular 'Italian' dish...when the knowledgeable g.m., who is originally from Bergame, Italy, came over and insisted that Broccoli Rabe is not native to Italy...like Chicken Parm. or Pizza as we know it...Its more Italian-American than 'vera' Italian..It this true chowhounders?
