IÃ‚Â´m an argentain citizen, searching for my great grandfather Giovanni Basso. The place of birth was in Finale Marina (today Finale Ligure) 01/29/1860. Son of Giovanni Basso and Caterina Affriccano (or Catalina Africano).
I sent some mails and the replied were that I should call at the following churches ofthe comune. The problem is that I donÃ‚Â´t speak italian.
1) Parrocchia Basilica S. Biagio
17024 Finale Ligure (SV) - Piazza S. Biagio
2) Parrocchia Di S. Giovanni Battista
17024 Finale Ligure (SV) - Via Bernini, 2
3) Parrocchia San Cipriano
17024 Finale Ligure (SV) - Via Cardano, 1
4) Parrocchia San Lorenzo
17024 Finale Ligure (SV) - Via Aurelia, 99
5) Parrocchia San Lorenzo Scuola Materna
17029 Varigotti (SV) - Via Aurelia, 99
6) Parrocchia Di San Bartolomeo Berruto Giorgio

Hi. if you search the birthact/marriage act/death act are in Archivio di stato di Savona from 1866 until 1900, but your ancestors is born in 1860, so are necessary to request to priest.. because your ancestor was of Finale Marina today hamleth of Finale Ligure, this are the ancient churches:
COLLEGIATA DI S. GIOVANNI BATTISTA
CHIESA DI S. FRANCESCO
so as you can see are only two.... also you can write to Savona bishop's office firstname.lastname@example.org but for my experience is very rare that an priest or an office of bishop reply to someone... I think that is better that you write an italian letter to some Basso people in Finale and you ask if he can help you...
