In 1923 Nazzareno was an american Citizen, so possible this was his first arrival in USA:

He was leaving in Italy his father Antonio and joining his uncle Zicola? Filippo in Richmond - IN

I think the right Birth location is San Leucio del Sannio (Benevento Province - Campania Region)

It seems the Family History Centers don't have San Leucio's Microfilms....
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... umns=*,0,0

so, as you know Nazzareno's possible birth date and his father's name perhaps you can try to request his "birth act" to the Comune of San Leucio del Sannio, and you'll able to know at least his mother's maiden name...

Comune Di San Leucio Del Sannio
Piazza Municipio, 1
82010 San Leucio Del Sannio (BN) -
Tel: 0824 45004

On this arrival manifest about Anna La Salvia Feleppa (1923) you can find her Naturalization mark:

7 - 132884 - 1/29/40

where:
7 is the District Number of Northeast OH, Northwest PA, Western NY
132884 is the petition number
1/29/40 Naturalization Date

[img=http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/9980/feleppaanna1923arrivalpab4.th.jpg]

Perhaps requesting her Naturalization Papers can show you her exact birth place.... on the manifest is Naples...
