My family is travelling from Delhi to the USA via Rome. Delhi to Rome(FCO) via Alitalia, 3 hours layover in Rome(FCO) and then Rome to New York via Delta.

They have Advance Parole. I am not able to get some confirmation on this?

Did anyone travel with AP via Rome? As per this link, Indians don't need transit visa. Please let me know if anyone has more information on this.

    Is your concern transiting Rome, or entering the USA? Or both? Has your family previously entered the USA with AP? – Traveller Jun 26 '19 at 14:20

As of this writing, Indian citizens with "ordinary" (i.e., not diplomatic or service) passports need an airport transit visa only in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Spain. They do not need an airport transit visa for transit in Italy, as you have found at the page linked in the question. So your family members will not require an airport transit visa for this itinerary if they each have their own Indian passport. Whether or not they have advance parole isn't particularly relevant.

The advance parole document allows them to travel to the US without a visa, so they do not need a US visa for this trip, either. They will need to show their passports and advance parole documents at the US immigration desk, and they will probably be taken to secondary inspection to wait for the officers to check on the status of their pending applications.
