There are many Scannavino's (and several from Ragusa) you can find at this site:

Hi,

There is a Giovanni Scannavino's birth listed on the basic site
familysearch.org

The very basic details are
born: 5/5/1850 (I know, this is 5 years out) in Ragusa.

parents: Salvatore Scannavino & Carmela DiStefano.

This might not, of course, be your Giovanni, but I thought I would mention it.
