There is a family tree for "Egidio Umberto Domenico Signoretti" on Ancestry.com
Is that yours? Owner listed as "emilyhandshaw"

On that site...
Egidio birth in Citta di Castello, Sept. 1, 1889
Parents listed as Giuseppe Signoretti and Eugenia Serroni
Ship manifest has him arriving June 1913 and going to Uncle Felice Terrino in Chicago, and leaving father Giuseppe in Citta di Castello.

His WWI Registration Card indicates that in 1917 he was living at N. Franklin St. in Chicago. He states that he served in the Italian Army (Infantry) for 3 months.

To do a further search of Italian records you may want to visit your nearest LDS (mormon) Family History Center...
They have microfilmed the civil registrations (births, marriages, deaths, etc.) for Citta di Castello from 1811-1978, and have them available to rent and view...
