Italian pronunciation

How do you pronounce the Italian names:

Francesco Usper (Spongia)

and

Donna Chiara Margarita Cozzollani?

I'm almost sure I have them right, but I'm hesitant about the Os, since the pronunciation guide I read tells me they can have an "o as in cozy" or an "o as in cost" sound. I've never studied Italian, so I don't know how to tell which one "sounds right". Is there a rule to know how an O will sound in Italian, or do you just have to know?

Thanks as always, linguaphiles!
