Carlo's profession looks like the word pensionista which Pippo found in another of your records-

I read "pensionista". This seems to be a word that does not exist in Italian today. We use the word "pensionato" to mean "retired". "Pensione" can also be used to mean (here I may use some inapposite word) a periodical income. So, what I think, but I can't be sure, is that Carlo was a man who lived with some sort of annuity (even if at that time welfare as we mean it today did not exist)

Yes, I made a note of that the other day, but I did not recognize it today. My bad!
It is interesting that even back then their were "trust fund babies", or something like it!

Thanks, Erudita
