Here's what I have managed to transcribe so far from this section of the birth record. I'd appreciate any corrections. Also, I'm especially having difficulty with the two underlined words. Thank you for helping me with this!

fermato da noi il dichiarante alli degli ........ dello non saper scrivere
Santo Martino, padre dello bambino, non scribente dichiarante
Pietro Tangredi, testimoni presente non scribente
Giovanni Ciavarella, testimoni presente non scribente

after each witness's name-should be testimonio and not testimoni; also to clarify what I typed in the above response-

should be: testimoni hanno detto non saper scrivere

another thing-you typed fermato da noi-should be firmato da noi.

firmato is from the verb firmare which means to sign.
