No, I don’t. You’d have to research Italian postmarks of the era. I could only advise on the dates as they had to conform to international formats (day-month-year).

That would explain the dates. Do you know what the 11-12 means. It's on both sides of the cover.
I believe the dates are 27-IX-32 and 19-X-32, that is September 27, 1932 [Genoa-New York] and October 19, 1932 [New York-Genoa]. Does that help spread the dates out a bit? The cover looks like the return leg to Italy.
Thanks for that info, Philip.
The dates on the cover are pretty interesting, based on the Wikipedia article. The post mark on the cover has the same dates (11-12-1932) but on the front it is stamped New York - Genova, and on the back, the same date but it is Genova - New York.
That's some speedy ocean liner :)
Can anyone decipher the signatures on the cover?
P.S. I thought I had posted this earlier, but when it did not show in the forum, I posted it again. So, I apologize for any double posts.
