this image is somewhat out of focus b/c the original film is.

Luigi's occupation looks like scarpellino ? might it be another version of scarpellatore..... sculptor? something different?

Hi,
yes scarpellino = stonecutter.
Rocco Giovanni occupation sounds like "marmista" = marble cutter.

regards.
Vincenzo.
I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).
