Help Translating Birth Record

I am new to researching Italian genealogy and could use some help translating this record for Attilio Timpano born in Caulonia, Calabria in 1909. I can make out some of the names, dates and numbers but not the father's occupation or most of the information about Attilio's mother.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Sept 13, 1909 at 9:01 in the town hall
Appearing was Giuseppe Timpano, the 26 year old son of Bruno (Timpano). He was a peasant (contadino) living in Caulonia. He reported that at 4:08 P.M. on the 12th of the current month, in the house on Contrada Strancera* (sp?), without a number, his legitimate wife, who was living with him, Caterina Cavallaro, the daughter of Francesco (Cavallaro), age 16, a spinner (filatrice), gave birth to their son, Attillio.
Witnesses to the declaration of the birth and presentation of the infant were Flavio Amato, the son of deceased Gennaro (Amato), age 38, a property owner, and Michele Nesci, age 56, the son of deceased Pasquale (Nesci), a blacksmith.

* I can't find this or anything close in spelling as a current street in the town
