Hi,
i don't know if someone just answered to you: the word "arbitrante" was used in Catania province to define a farmer who pays the rent of the land to the landlord.

regards.
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).

Thank you Nazca.

You have confirmed what I thought it might be. I have also heard that the title was also used for farmers that sub-leased the rented farm land to other farmers. Have you heard of this as well?

Thanks
