Help with new document

Post by Biff83 » 05 Apr 2012, 18:08

I've never seen this type of document before. I know it references Gustavo
Colonnello di Francesco and was part of his paperwork when he arrived in 1898 but what was its purpose?

Thanks again.

It looks to be a statement that Gustavo was permitted to "leave freely" - there were no restrictions on his leaving Italy.
It was part of his passport (issued 9 Feb 1898)

Thanks Tessa.

I've never seen anything like this before and thought it might have been something showing he had served in the military and fulfilled his obligation.

That could have been one of the "restrictions" to travel :-)

The actual translation is "to allow to pass freely" Colonnello ...
