It looks as though I have a translation but I am not clear on the parents. I think they are Nicola Ciampi and Federica Sepe, but what does the Don and Donna signify?
Grazie,

Dolores

Don and Donna are titles given to prominent people in the village or town.

Mrs Donna Laura Ciampi, a gentlewoman, 20yo, born in Sturno and living in Frigento, wife of Mr Don Luca Nardovino, died July 16 1879 at 4:00AM. She was the daughter of Mr Don Nicola Ciampi and Mrs Donna Federica Sepe, property owners living in Sturno.
