Occupations in 1800s

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.

Occupations in 1800s

Postby andieh69 » 25 Nov 2015, 21:55

I have been reviewing the records of my ancestors and I was wondering what the it would have meant in the social class hierarchy to have these jobs.

Spinner
Laborer
Cultivator
Landowner
Shepard
Surveyor
Peasant

Also can someone tell me the Italian words for these?

Thank you

Thank you this is great.. What would the class order likely have been for these. I'm assuming landowner would have been higher and peasant lowest.. Curious about the others.
