Livio, what confused me on the death date was that she was born on 24 January 1883 also?

Here is her birth record.

and you were correct to confused, here are the dates and times:

Jan 24 1:40pm death of Caterina
Jan 24 7:15pm birth
Jan 25 9:40am birth declaration
Jan 24 11:20am death declaration

The only explanation I see is:
Caterina was born maybe on Jan 23 (1 day earlier) and she died on Jan 24 1:40pm, and her birth was not yet declared. So the father rushed to the Civil State Office to make the declaration of her birth, but he was confused and said she was born the 24th. Two hours later he sent out Rocco di Leo and Giuseppe Cocchiola to announce the death...
