I read his name as Domenico Saggio. If you look at the word which follows the surname, which should be schetto; schetta more clearly follows the bride's parents' surname, you will see that the initial letter of this surname is the same as in those two words. Those words refer to each of the spouses as being single or never before married.

Dated March 4, 1663
Banns were on Feb 22nd, 24th, and 25th and resulted in no impediments to the marriage.
Groom: Domenico Saggio, son of deceased Francesco and dec Francesca Saggio.
Bride: Francesca Guarino, daughter of deceased Michele and living Vincenza Guarino.

You're very welcome.

As to the words schetto (masculine) and schetta (feminine), I believe these two words to be Sicilian dialect. Although both my husband and myself both have some Sicilian ancestry, I'm honestly not familiar with Sicilian dialects. When I search the words online, however, I see them listed as such. I also see that schetto is a synonym for the Italian words "celibe" (a single male, never before married) and "scapolo" (bachelor; single man). I see the word schetta as a synonym for the Italian word "zitella" (old maid; spinster)-meaning single, never before married. So I think that, even though these particular church records you have posted are basically written in Latin, there may be some Sicilian dialectal influences in them. I can't find "schetto" or "schetta" as being specifically Latin words.
