This is a certificate of the free state of the groom meaning that he is not already married, is not a member of the clergy, and is free from military obligations-hence he is "free" to marry.

No, the date of the certificate is Sept 27, 1866 and is for Giuseppe Salamone, son of Don Andrea Salamone and deceased Rosalia Franzella. The certificate is for Giuseppe and his marriage to Maria Balzano.

I agree with Livio that Maria's surname is Balsamo. The name is much clearer on her birth record and also on the coversheet.
