Civil records for Maida are on line for 1809-1861 at familysearch.org
The Italian government have put some death records on line at their antenati site. Anything else you will have to write to the town itself.

For a very evocative look at life in Maida, you may want to read Gay Talese's "Unto the Sons". Maida is one of the ancestral comunes of the Talese family.

The book describes in extensively researched detail many aspects of daily life in Maida, including the holiday tradition of the noble families opening up their palazzi and welcoming the townspeople for Christmas celebrations.
