Possible 1912 Philly manifest for Luisa Di Sipio, line 17
"To dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands"

I do believe it is a mistake. You can see that her occupation was listed as "farm laborer" and then written over with a correction of "Domestic" -
I think they just forgot to change the gender
If you take a look at the second page that Biff posted, you can see that the two passengers above Luisa were going to the same address. They were "met by ... Gaetano DiSipio"
