There are currently three Polizzia families in the Province of Cagliari in the towns of Capoterra, Decimomannu and one in the city of Cagliari.
What was written as Gaglian had to have been a typo for the city and/or province of Cagliari. ("C" can sound like "G" and final vowel/syllable is "lazy" or even dropped in some dialects.) The surname Quiana doesn't exist in Sardegna nor anywhere in Italy but I'm sure this spelling must've been a typo and American phonetic for CHIAMA or CHIANESE or CHIANURA (CHI- pronounced like "KEY"), all which can be found in Cagliari Province. (Polizzia and Chianese can be found in the town of Decimomannu, Calgiari Province, and Polizzia, Chianese and Chiama can be found in the city of Cagliari.)
The surname CHIANA, though rare, does exist in Sicily and north central Italy but not in Sardegna.
Hope this helps,
