erudita,
thanks for this. i found a previous birth record which listed his occupation as 'Mastro'. do you think the first letters of this are mastro?

When I first enlarged the document, that was exactly what I was thinking, but I can't for the life of me figure out what the rest of the word is.

I think there are more letters to the occupation running through the word "domiciliato"

It looks to me that it could be "Maestro Elementare" (primary school teacher).
Primary school education in Italy was reformed by the so-called "Legge Coppino" of 1877 who made public primary education free and attendance mandatory. Since the birth record is from 1889, it could be likely.

thanks for your thoughts on this. it looks as if it could very likely be Elementare.
