Age of the groom and his father

Post by rp76226 » 12 May 2015, 18:20

In this marriage record, it looks like the groom is 56 years old, and his father is 60, an impossibility. What are their correct ages:

It IS a mistake. Vincenzo, the father, is deceased: his profession is "allora" Contadino, where "allora" indicates when he was alive; and also he was domiciliato in Recalmuto "vivendo", when he was alive.
Maybe he died whem he was 60yo...
