Translation help - please & thank you

I need help with this translation....Pasquale Maggio on other documents lists parents unknown. This is his birth certificate, but I can't read the text. Thinking he was a foundling.

This record is dated 2 may 1816 at 2 PM at the town office.

Marianna Murro(sp?), 36, a midwife living on Strada della Chiesa, appeared before the official to say that at 4:30 [AM] last night at the door to the house there was a child who appeared to be about 4 or 5 months of age, born to parents unknown.
She tells the officials of the items she found with the child including 2 cloth diapers, and a white cloth sash or strip. (A child would sometimes be left with items that later would make help in identification if/when the parents are able to redeem the child.) The declarant also seems to indicate that he has an apparent mark on the nape of his neck. (another way to identify)
The child was given the name Pasquale Maggio.
Witnesses to this declaration and record:
Francesco Gaglinardi(?), age 70, peasant farmer
Leonardo Benedetto, age 37, cart driver

I do hate to ask again....I have only a few documents that have handwriting and I'm having such a difficult time reading them. I can make out a few words, numbers. But I'm not sure of the parents. Would you mind terribly looking at another? http://tinypic.com/r/2mcdslu/6
