Sephardic Surnames - Italy

Surnames: Piazza, Statile, Della Rocco, Mastriani
I was just curious to know if anyone here is familiar with or knows of any Italian Jewish surnames?

I have family ("Piazza" and "Statile") from the Matera/Basilicata region of Potenza, Italy and saw how there were a community of Jews there before they were expelled at one point in history.

I also have family from Roma ("Della Rocco") and possibly Naples ("Mastriani")

Any information, guidance, or advice on where to further look into these names and possible Jewish roots would be greatly appreciated!
