Death Record Translation (Pietro Marchi)

Postby MichaelSerchio » 04 Jan 2014, 13:53


I'm trying to determine whether the attached record for Pietro Marchi is the correct person I'm looking for.

I know that my Pietro Marchi's father was Domenico, wife was Giovanna Pellegrini (daughter of Luigi) and that Pietro and Giovanna had two children: Umberto (b 1887 Barga) and Maria (b 1890 Barga).

The attached record may match the details I know, as I can see some matching names, but my Italian isn't brilliant, so I was wondering if someone could help me translate?

Thank you very much in advance for any help you can give.

I read "figurista", but not so sure. In this case, I found a reference by Google, about a man who lived in XIX century and was from Tuscany (so, same time and place) who was a "figurista, modellatore di figure in gesso"; I'd say a "plaster figures modeler"
Mother's surname was Gonnella.
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi
