The cancel on this Italian stamp has a place-name ending "...NZAI" but none of my sources list a place whose name ends in those letters. I'd appreciate any help in identifying that place of posting.

I Think Rod is right with it being a number.

Maybe Monza 1

I would expect a "one" to have a serif, like "1."

I looked through my 1700 Italian stamps,
and was about to comment, Italy does not appear to add any numeral suffixes
to their agencies postmarks.

Then I found ROMA 45 and ROMA 64 (Non Serriffed)

So it's a "maybe"

The gap between NZA and l would corroborate a numeral.

Seems like it's futile to guess an answer before vayolene adds her(?) opinion. The bedrock of community knowledge.
