LanguageItalian, with a few passages in Latin
Copy of the prenuptial agreement (capitoli matrimoniali) entered into by Marianna Alliata, daughter of Domenico Alliata, prince of Villafranca and duke of Saponara, and Baldassare Naselli e Morso, prince of Poggioreale and son of Luigi Naselli, prince of Aragon, before their wedding in August, 1763. Because both parties were the heirs of substantial estates, including large portions of land and real property, as well as titles of nobility and privileges, the two families meticulously drafted the document to regulate matters preceding the wedding (such as Marianna's rich dowry, whose yearly installments followed a strict schedule and a set of compensatory measures should the bride's father fail to comply) and every possible outcome of the union itself (including separation, death of either spouse, offspring etc.). The document also contains the names of the numerous witnesses who were present when the agreement was made public (f. 37v-38r), as well as a brief passage, written in Latin (f. 38r-39v), in which the notary Carlo Filippone, guarantees the authenticity of the information provided.
