surname confirmation

I am reading the groom's mother's surname as Rossetta. Does anyone concur?

Thank you
Jim

Hi Jim,

Took a look and it does look like Rossetta, but it could be Rossetti :?

Rossetti is found in SMCV, Caserta today.
Rossetta is found more in the Province of Napoli -

Thank you both for the confirmation. I'll have to figure out whether to use the a or the i.

If you look at the surname of my grandmother, it was originally Mattori and then became Mattora. I'm getting accustomed to these nuances. :?
