Hello Christian Crovo! Welcome to the forum...

I checked the online records for Rapallo and unfortunately there are very limited birth records (1875-1880) on line at www.familysearch.org

At Ancestry.com there are some Birth Indexes, but they are incomplete.
However, I thought you might like to see that the surname CROVO is common in Rapallo.
Here is a page from the 1886-1895 Birth Index showing many Crovo. The year and record # appear after each name.
