Was he property owner of a business or home? If I'm not mistaken, I see a word "cantile" next to father's name information. What does this mean?
Thank you in advance for any further explanation.

"Possidente" means that he was reach and did not have to do a specific job for a living
The occupation of Luigi Capozzi, the father of Fortunata, was "Capitano mercantile" = captain on a merchant ship
