I'm having difficulty with a phrase in a death record. A nine day old baby died and the death certificate says she died, "...nel osteria di ragione del Signore Isidoro Carli."
The only definition I could find for osteria is tavern or public house. It seems unlikely that a newborn would die in a tavern. Can anyone enlighten me on this? The date of death was March 16, 1813. Perhaps the meaning of the word has changed since then.
