There are two basic rules about pronounciating italian words that hit here:

First, the "g" in a "gl" is always silent . Example: "Tagliatelle" is spoken like "Talliatelle". Second, an "h" following a "g" always means the "G" is not pronounced as a "j", but like the "g" in "logo". Example: A Lamborghini is NOT a "Lambordjeenee"

If i had to find a way to write "Pogliaghi" phonetically without using the international alphabet, i'd probably write it as "PolliĆ”-ghee".
