Hi abt Tommaso and Angela I cannot help because by Familysearch.org, it are the marriages from 1866 so I know not when they married.. the son, Donato was born in 1873 so maybe they married around 1871/2.. but no index and the search sheet by sheet takes a long time...
however you can try by yourself https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1666827446
the names are on the bottom ... if you find it, post the link that I can read it nd to give you the infos...
regards,

Hello Sumary! :-)

Here is the birth record for Vincenzo Tognotti, in 1890 in Borgo a Mozzano, Lucca


Record #291
Dated 18 December 1890 at 4:30 PM at the town office
Appearing before the official was Giuseppe Tognotti, 37, innkeeper residing in Borgo a Mozzano, to declare that on the 14th of the current month, at the place at Via Regina Margherita #155, to Sofia Pieretti, daughter of Vincenzo, his wife, housewife residing with him, was born a male child who was presented and to whom was given the name
VINCENZO GIOVANNI DOMENICO


You can see where Giuseppe Tognotti signed the record with the witnesses. :D
