Archia? Arcia? Archie? Italy

Calling all Neapolitans out there -- I am assisting a friend whose grandfather comes from this town (Archia? Arcia?) near Napoli. I have done several searches but can't seem to find the town. Does anyone know where this place would be and what is the correct name/spelling? We would like to go visit in the spring but heard that it is a very small, remote town. Any help would be appreciated - grazie mille!

Or Arce, between Rome and Naples? It's quite a bit further from Naples than Acerra, but the name sounds closer to your guesses....

Thanks all for your help -- KT you were right, it is Arce. My friend's spelling was WAY off. At least now we know to start planning our spring trip. Grazie!
