Maestro Servitore?

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Maestro Servitore?

Postby bvbellomo » 20 Jul 2012, 18:26

My 4-great grandfather from Palermo has an mro in from of his name, which indicates Maestro. I thought this meant he was educated, or a master craftsman, or something similar. His occupation is listed as 'Servitore' or servant however, so I am confused. Does this mean he was an important servant, or managed other servants, or was just really good at his job?
