No luck with a quick search in Indiana
Maybe if we looked for his other records & his family?
I think this matches Laura's :D census record, Valarie

Is this his 1904 manifest?

I am from Clinton, Indiana, and my parents still live there. Do you have any other information I could use to help find your answer? Do you have a birthday for Antonio, or the name of his wife or children?

Ciao Alberto...I just read your query about your grandfather, Antonio DallaFina...You and my husband, Richard Barbieri, are second cousins! His grandmother, Adele Faccin, and your grandmother, Anna Faccin, were sisters. We correspond with Bruna and Bianca Faccin in Dueville...Are you near them...or are you in touch with them?
