Yes, you would ask for una copia integrale of the atto di nacsita (meaning an integral act). You get it by making this specific request of the Ufficio Civile, or if you are lucky enough to have your town on microfilm at the FHC (see www.familysearch.org), you can make a copy yourself by renting the film at your local Later Day Saints family history center. You must have asked for an extract or estratto (mind my spelling!), so you received some brief information.

John,

Here's the image of my grandfather's birth record.

Giuseppe Epifano Atti di Nascita

The record gives his birth date and time, birth place including the street, parents' names, ages and occupations and witnesses with ages and occupations.

Yes, I have a few. They are sometimes VERY hard to read because the handwriting is quite different, shall we say. They usually contain the name of the mom and dad, the profession and age of the dad and sometimes the age and profession of the mom, the address of where the child was born, the time of day the child was born, the name of the witnesses, their ages and professions . . . and sometimes more. I have one that states the maternal and paternal grandfather and great grandfather of the baby and whether they were alive or dead and their professions too. Sometimes there is an annotation on the birth certificate with the person's death info. So far, I don't have any with the annotations though.

It should be somewhat the same. The one I have from 1871 has more details than the one I have from 1884. That is because the one from 1871 was entirely handwritten but the one from 1884 was a preprinted form and the town official filled in the blanks.
