Ciao a tutti--

I am new to this site and would greatly appreciate help with the deciphering the word written in the attached picture. It is from a Palermo birth certificate from 1878. The context is "nella casa posta in .... al numero ..."

I believe that the word should be the name of a street or neighborhood on the south side of Palermo, near Mezzomonreale, Molara, or la Rocca.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Benvenuto Matt

I think it would help if you could also post the rest of the birth certificate. That would help with a comparison of the writing and letters.

The files are too large to post on this board. As such, here are links for two pages of the original and a copy of the modern estratto di nascita.

Matt,

Just to let you know I'm still checking. I've been trying to locate something on a modern map of Palermo that resembles what's on the document. Hopefully, the street name hasn't changed since 1877!

Biff--

What do you think that it says?

After staring at the phrase for a few more minutes, I have come to the realization that it might say "Ospedale Civico."

If so, then I must be an enormous cretino! Non puo essere che io sia cosi stupido.

"Ospedale civico" is correct!
