Dated Feb 13, 1810 at 4 P.M.
Appearing was Signor Giovanni Sanvito, a blacksmith, living in the Tavano neighborhood. He reported that, at 10 on the 12th, a female infant was born to his wife Caterina Serra and was being given the name Elisabetta. Witnesses to the declaration of the birth, and presentation of the infant, were Signor Leonardo Procopio, age 35, a painter, living in the Camardi neighborhood, and Signor Domenico Oliveri, age 50, a shoemaker living in the same neighborhood. The extracted copy of the birth record was dated in Borgia on Feb 12, 1822 and was for use for Elisabetta’s marriage.

info on age at marriage

By 1819, there was a code for the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, to which Southern Italy and Sicily belonged. According to article number 152 of this code, a male could not contract marriage until he had reached the age of fourteen, and a female could not contract marriage until she had reached the age of twelve. With regard to parental consent, article number 163 of that same code, dictated that a male, who had not yet reached the age of twenty-five, and a female, who had not yet reached the age of twenty-one, could not marry without the consent of both the father and the mother. In cases where the parents were in disagreement, the consent of the father was sufficient for the marriage to take place.

From the year 1865, or the time of the unification of Italy, article number 55 of the civil code of the Kingdom of Italy dictated that a male could not contract marriage until he had reached the age of eighteen and the female until she had reached the age of fifteen. Article 63 of that same code dictated that the male could not contract marriage without the consent of the father and mother until he had reached the age of twenty-five and the female could not contract marriage without the consent of both parents until she had reached the age of twenty-one. There were exceptions to these rules, provided by article number 68, for special cases.
