In Italian, remember that every letter is pronounced. Double LLs, back-to-back? Pronounce them both. In Beniamino's case, it is the same.

Bay-Nee-Uh-Mee-No

The "E" before the "B" is said as a light "aye". "Ni" is stressed as "ee" (i). Soft "A"s as in "Father". "Mi" is stressed as "ee" (i). "No" is as usual.
An "I" before an "A" does not necessarily mean "Yah", as stated above. Neither letter is neglected, both are pronounced.
