Hello,
first of all I suggest you to get all the complete informations you have about your ancestor (you can get them from naturalization record, social security death index, ship manifest, passport, death record, cemetery record)
After that contact Lentini civil record office where you can find birth, marriage and death records of your ancestor.
You can request civil certificate to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Piazza Umberto I, 1
CAP 96016
Lentini (SR)
Italy

or contact Archivio di Stato di Siracusa

http://wwwdb.archivi.beniculturali.it/S ... IRACUSA%22

or rent Lentini civil record microfilm to FHL (mormon church)

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... o+civile++

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo

If you provide the first name of your ancestor, and where they married, final destination, name children, we can help better, regards, suanj

Can you also provide their children names & year of births? What state did they settle in? There's a bunch of results for Joseph (Joe) Colletti & Joseph Collette. More info will help us provide correct records.
