Help with names on birth act

I could use some help on determining the father's first name and the mother's surname.
Is the father's name Olinto/Olindo?--never seen that first name. Check signatures on bottom
Is the mother's surname Capocefalo?

Thanks,
Biff

It does look like Grasso rather than Grosso.

And thanks for the Riemma FYI.

Best,

Re: Where is Casino?

That was my guess as well; they were married in Formicola about 80km south of Cassino.

Where is Casino?

I'm having trouble locating the town/frazione Casino. The following is a ship manifest for Giuseppe Rendano, his wife Annunziata D'Isa and her sister, line 5-8. Last residence is Casino. Both were born in Caserta--Giuseppe in the town of Caserta; Annunziata in Formicola. https://www.ancestry.com/int...
