a copy of this reference was provided by the comune in San Leo, written in script, under the colum named Professione, condizione, mestiere, it could be colouo?
I think it may be a word from the romangnole dialetto, at one point I though it meant someone who works the land, owned by another.

Molte grazie Liviomoreno!

it is colono - just found another reference in which the script is easier to read.
