Hi, Fioravante means "in front of a flower". It is the kind of name that would be given to a foundling or abandoned baby. A name that would not exist in the community where the child was found. That doesn't mean that he didn't have parents that you could find out about, just that at some point you would hit a brick wall.
To know for sure you would have to know the town where he was born and then look for his birth certificate. If you need any help with this email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You could also search "contacognome" at www.paginebianche.it to find how many others have this name. (Doesn't mean they would be related but you never know)
