(for Mori Eugenio) nato in ___________________, residente in ___________, figlio di Stefano, possidente, residente in __________________.
I cannot decipher the Italian script in the spaces I have left underlined, the rest I can handle. Since I cannot decipher them, I cannot translate them.
I also have a copy of a Certificate of Marriage that was issued by the Commune of Felino in 1951, which is an extract, and it states that Eugenio Mori was born in Poviglio. However that is not what the script on the Atti looks like to me.
Old Italian Script can take a little while to get used to reading. Why don't you post a copy of the record you are trying to read and someone should be able to help you.
I thought I DID upload the file as an attachment. I've followed the FAQ directions twice in attempting to edit my original post and add an attachment, but it does not seem to show up. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
the writing appears to be Eurela but I couldn't find a listing for that town/village. At the top of the act, it does state that it is the town of Felino which is in Emilia Romana. The second space that you marked is the same town name with stessa.....meaning the same town of ___. The "EU" seems pretty clear it's that 3rd letter ..........

But I can find no trace of such a place. It might be a frazione or a contrada, but it doesn't seem to be a village or hamlet...
I also have an extract from Felino of their marriage that was made in 1951. It shows a birth place for Eugenio as Poviglio, which is as far as I know the Mori family home. This is why I did not understand the Atti di Matrimonio.
I have reached the bottom of the Atti and the odd name in the top part makes even less sense (also given the 1951 extract) because of the mention of Poviglio in the bottom half of the Atti. (It was a copy from a very large book and would not scan in one go.)
Well, in a nutshell, it's basically a town district, rather like a suburb. Used more in past times than in modern day Italy, but used occasionally in older documents.
Perhaps the most famous contrade (pl) are those of Siena which the world sees when the Palio horse race around the Campo is run twice a year (Jul/Aug), and the displays of Contrade flag tossing takes place followed by the horse race around the suare in Siena...
In this Palio (July 2007) the horse from the 'Oca' (goose) Contrada won. The cobblestones are just covered with sand and the riders do NOT have saddles!
There are 17 contrade - all with unusual names.
