For these years you will need to write to the Comune di Pico in Italian and request their birth records.

GIOVANNI CARNEVALE 16 Feb 1897 07 Jan 1989 01201 (Pittsfield, Berkshire, MA) (none specified) 716-03-9646 Long-time or retired railroad workers

This is your grandfather in the Social Security Index. If you go to www.rootsweb.com and search him in the Social security index, there is a link to print a letter to social security to get his application for his social security card. It will cost $27. His parents' names should be on his application.
