birth record help

Attached is the birth record (in the lower right) of my great-great-grandfather, Vincenzo Ferreri.
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3322562/records/Firrera%20Vincenzo%20Birth.jpg

I can read a lot of this, but not all of it. He was born 4 years before his father (Antonio) married his mother (Pasquala Ciraulo). I wanted to know if this explains why.

There are also some other names. I see Michele Schimmente fu Gandolfo, who is another ancestor, but I don't understand why he is on this record since he is on a different branch of my family tree. Is his age listed as 35? I see a lot of other names, most are unfamiliar names. Who were these people?

Also, I see he was born in February, but I can't find the day.

Thanks. What is the word for 'wife' in this document? I keep looking for 'moglie' but can't find it.

Gandolfo was deceased, correct?

Do you see any places other than Polizzi Generosa in this record?
