Hard to read...
Age might be 18 "dieciotto".
I read child's name as Frescura ("freshness"), but never heard of it as a name...

I see from your other post that this Registrar used to write children's surnames, so Frescura might be her surname. Mother is known, so they can't give the cihild an invented name. The one thing I can imagine is they forgot to write father's name...

thanks for your thoughts on this, pippo. frescura is not a surname i've seen in this town. although this birth year has no index i will have to look at others more closely.

most appreciative,
donna
