I'm not sure all of our last names are Italians... There was a huge migration process at the beginning of the 20th century from Italy, but there were lots of immigrants from Spain in the 40's-60's...
There are lots of immigrants in Argentina: Jewish, Eastern Europe...

And, yes, we speak Spanish because Argentina was an Spanish colony until early 19th century.
