where in Italy are these Fanellis from?

My new wife and I are heading to Italy later this year. My mother's maiden name is Fanelli and I'd love to find out where her family is from and visit the town.

My Great-grandfather was Anthony Fanelli and was born around 1861 and came to the US between 1893-1900 and ended up in Cleveland, OH. I cannot seem to find the exact time as censuses (censi?) have conflicting info, nor can I find his definitive ship manifest. Unfortunately, his death certificate did not list his parents. He was married to Anna Rose Marinelli who was born in 1867 and whose parents were Rocco and Josephine Romano.

That's as far as I can get, and my mother, age 57, is the oldest relative on the Fanelli side...any help would be appreciated.
