condizione on the passport?

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

condizione on the passport?

Postby timo » 28 Sep 2010, 14:43

What is the "condizione" field on the Italian passport from ~1910? Is it job/occupation? What would carrethere mean? (carrot)-farmer?

Thanks

Looks like "Carrettiere" which translates as Carter, Carrier, Cart driver, etc.

Thanks, Carmine.

How about the characters/glyphs inside the red squares on the next image. Are they signs for "ditto" ?

In the context shown, it sure looks like ditto. I believe the Italian (actually, Latin) term would be "idem"; possibly uguale (equal) or "lo stesso" (the same).

Yes, looking more closely, the symbol appears to be an "S" for "Stesso" (same).
