Italian Occuption: "Grazone"

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.

Italian Occuption: "Grazone"

Postby JOHN08 » 26 Aug 2012, 04:55

I need input about the occupation: "Grazone."

A relative on his 1818 marriage record, he was 25 years old, had his occuption listed: "Grazone."

On his death record at the age of 60 in 1853, his occuption is listed: "Grazone."

Research this occupation, I have found or the following definitions: "Shop boy, Waiter."

I have input from others that "Grazone" is really a "helper at a baker, stable, etc."

I am sure this relative was not a waiter, his father was a "contadino."

Was it common for a person to be a "Grazone" at the age of 60?

Any input about this occupation is appreciated.

Garzone non significa cameriere " waiter " ma aiutante o manovale
