How do I find this book!?
A long time ago I read this book called Century that was amazing! Because of the name it’s impossible to find online and I need to find the author. It’s a story that follows two brothers from Italy. One goes to prison and the other comes to America and becomes a banker. Does anyone know details about this book?

Lib.rare.ian has given you the answer. If in future you want to find a book when you only have the title put the title into inverted commas "Century" and add the word novel.
I did that and it came up at once.

You're right, there are so many books with this as their title, or part of their title.
Can you remember what decade you read the book? That will rule out anything published after that.
Hardcover or paperback? Written for adult readers? Any other details that aren't major but have stuck with you?
Armed with that, you can try any of these:
