Probably the surname Travolta is Sicilian. But in Sicily apparently this surname doesn't exist anymore.
No traces on Italian Pagine Bianche (www.paginebianche.it).
A passenger is recorded among the persons arriving in New York in 1904

Salvatore his a sicilian first name of course and it is the first name of Trvolta's father too.
It is almost sure that the Travolta's origin is in Sicily: It is written on his biography.
So for the moment the origin of surname Travolta to me is a mystery:
