The lighter style definitely is Semplicità. The heavy one is similar to Semplicità toda nera, but some details are off: the A bar sits lower, the terminals in S are more vertical, M is narrower, the middle bar in E is longer, … Most notably, Semplicità doesn’t have a lowercase a. Congrats, you found an in-use example of Napoli. This 1930s geometric sans is a copy of Super-Grotesk with added Futura-like alternates for ‘AMNV’. It was shown by Fonderia Tipografica Meridionale A. De Luca in three weights, plus italics and condensed styles.
