I do not have any specific information about how to obtain the information you are searching for on your family,
but I wanted to mention that I MET SERENO MUSETELI (spelling?) in 1977 when I visited Biasca with my father, Desio Rodoni. I have a picture of Sereno somewhere in my family pictures. My father was born in Biasca and immigrated to the US in 1928. My nonie (grand mother), Alice Rossi Rodoni Gianola, was a friend of Sereno's and they corresponded by mail for many years. When I was in Biasca my father took me to a place where all the families genealogy was registered. He had them print out the genealogy of his family, which he gave to me. There must be a newspaper for the town that has archival records and a tourism office that may be able to direct you to some of the names and addresses of these businesses. Also, my grandfather - Sebastiano Rodoni - was married first to a woman named Clara Paolina Rivera. They married in Butte, Montana, and had several children. When Clara died my grandfather returned to Biasca with the boys, where he met and married my Nonna. My father is from this second marriage. We may be related somehow! Sylvia Rodoni Koutz
