You will find that online databases for these locations are almost non-existent. :(
Here is a link to free site www.familysearch.org where you can view some records online from Cammarata - 1866-1910
https://familysearch.org/search/image/i ... %3D1946817

BUT you CAN do your research at your nearest LDS Family History Center :D where you can rent and view the microfilmed civil registrations (births, marriages, deaths) for
Genzano di Lucania, Potenza for years 1809-1910
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... m%2F779447

Ribera, Agrigento for years 1821 - 1929
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... m%2F379411

Cammarata, Agrigento for years 1820-1910

https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... m%2F585281

For your nearest center...

You would do well to familiarize yourself with the Italian records...

Some great reference books:

Discovering Your Italian Ancestors: How to find and record your unique heritage, by Lynn Nelson. You should get a copy of this book and read it through BEFORE you view the records.

Italian Genealogical Records, by Trafford R. Cole is also a comprehensive explanation of the records and how to use them.

A good resource you can view online:
Italian Record Extraction - An Instructional Guide
