Well, if you don't know anything about them, you should at least tell us something about their children, or other descendants!

Well, there is a slim chance they come from the Messina/Catania provinces of Sicily. Otherwise, I would guess Northern Italy where the Mazzoli name is common. 'Oleviri' seems like an alternate spelling of 'Oliveri' or 'Olivieri', which is why I suggested trying Siciliy. This is the contents of a Social Security application/claim I found:
Name: Egole Mazzoli
Gender: Female
Spouse: Antonio Oleviri
Child: Michael Carl Oliver

I should add that you really would need to provide more information about your ancestors such as whether they married in Italy or abroad, approximately when they immigrated, when their oldest child was born, etc. I know you say that that's all the information you have, but if consider the current generation, their ages and parents' ages, marriages etc., you should be able to work backwards to your ancestors so that you can at least provide estimates of some of the things I mentioned. E.g., do you know approximately what yea 'Michael Carl Oliver' was born? Where?
