Hello and welcome to the forum! :-)

Can you give us a few more details to help in your search?

Did Pietro and Maria emigrate?
Do you know the names of their children? and did those children live in Italy or another country?
Do you have an approximate death date for Pietro or Maria?
If they, or their children resided in US, can you tell us where they settled?

Hi and welcome!
Is this your ancestor : Pietro Ruffatto, 60 from Valperga (misspelled Valpergo on Ellis Island record) traveling with wife Maria and sons Stefano and Domenico (misspelled Dominico) going to another son Francesco in Illinois?

According to this manifest Maria ha a brother Antonio living in Cuorgnè but his surname is given as Bodrafide, that doesn't exist.

Ciao Paola

Might want to start with the Italian Phone Book.
There is ONE listing for the name RUFFATTO in Valperga.
