You can write to the Comune of Ionadi at the following address to request your GGF's birth record...

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Piazza Italia, 1
89851 Ionadi (VV)
ITALY

As for your GGM... you would have to narrow down her exact birthplace as Naples is both a Province and a city. If they were married in Italy, there should be a record of the publication of the banns in IONADI where the groom was from. Most likely they were married in her hometown. The "Pubblicazione" should identify her place of birth/marriage.
So when you write to the Comune of Ionadi, request a search for a marriage or publication of marriage for your GGF. Sometimes we get lucky and the marriage is annotated on the birth record :-)

I'm pretty sure my GGM was born in the city of Naples - do you have the address to request her birth certificate?
