You have two different documents for this birth act.
The top part is...

Hi trish in fact the Tommaso first name left some perplexity me too, as in my translation... and could be Rosa in effect, because are wrote:" alla quale" as for female gender... otherwise it must wrote" al quale" for male gender... .. kisses, suanj

When you get the other Birth Act for Tommaso, let us know. I would love to see the whole thing.
Also, are you referring to the marriage date on the Birth Act that was listed? If so, the one marriage date is the original date that the marriage took place which is October 20, 189? (could be 1897 or 1893). It also looks like it was Mariage Act #117.
The other idate is when it was logged sent to the Province of Cosenza to be logged into their records. This date is March 26, 1902.
I believe that the two different marriage date are because the first:
1-October 20 1897 was the civil marriage and after some month
2-February 24 1898 they married in the church..
just my opinion... in fact
the transcription, in the registry, it was for
- 1Â° date in September 18, 1901
and when back in the civil record office, the church act they transcripted in
- 2Â° date in March 26, 1902
I'm not here to argue with anyone, I'm just here to give my opinion from experience. Plus my other post, I was only referring to the handwritten notation on the dates, not all the dates. I wasn't sure which dates the poster was referring to.
My personal opinion is for you to order the microfilm for the dates mentioned in the Birth Act of Anna Maria in order to find out which date is the correct date of Marriage. This is the only way you will know for sure what the dates all mean.
The only dates we are definitely sure about is the one date of when the record was written in the Registry of Marriage of San Giovanni in Fiore. The other date is when it was sent to the Province of Cosenza. (Remember, that two documents were always written - one for the town itself, the other for the Province.)
Now the way I'm reading the document (and again, this is only my opinion), it could mean any of the following things:
1. The first date of marriage never took place, and the second date is the correct marriage date.
2. Like Suanj stated, one could be a Civil date and the other Church date.
3. The one date could be the date of Publication (Banns of Marriage) and the other the Marriage date.
4. There was an error some where in the some other document and they were making the correction for the date of marriage in the bottom of the record (the handwritten information). There are too many words being used such as "legitimate child", and "conjoined (married) parents". Therefore, in my opinion they were trying to prove something and/or make some type of correction.
Therefore, I believe #4 is the reason for all the dates mentioned. However, no one will ever know the truth unless you get the actual record to see what date is correct.
