Abstract
(English)
The Census of 1841 in Tuscany was first official data registry which tried to describe Tuscan population as a whole on granducal basis. With the use of special ad hoc created forms all demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of families and single persons in "Granducato di Toscana" were described. These data of Census, now kept by the State Archive of Florence , supply a precious source for studies of all different aspects of the population and include following information: name, surname, age, gender, marital status, employment, religion, schoolarity, "social status". In the registrers for each community and parish a full account is given of homes, resident families, and composition of families including family servants. Each of those entities had a proper incremental code number. [Registers were generated and updated by priests, who at that time were only surely scholarised officers widespread on territory, that is why they are divided by parish, which is an administrative unit typical of canonic right, instead of quarters or "rioni" or "contrade" which instead had been long practiced in civil right. ] During early 80:s the research group of prof. Biagioli of Department of Modern History of Pisa University, charged the computational linguistic Institute of CNR with digitalization and the electronic processing of these data as well as of data from "Catasto" [public registry of buildings and land ownership] to enable statistical, demographical, historical, sociological and economic analysis . In this work the authors have used the only partially usable subset of data left of that work, concerning four communities in the province of Pisa i.e actual Bièntina, Càscina, Pontedera and San Giuliano Terme (at that time named "Baths of San Giuliano") and is more concerned with terminological and lexical issues a gender related analysis of work and craftmanships. Each of the four communities has its own peculiar profile. Work is developed in 5 points: a) Informatics retrieval of linguistic information from Tuscany of 1800 focused by the arts and craftmanships more in use in families of that time, b) gender division of works and craftmanships, c) observation of lexical disparity in the four communities and terminological curiosities of that historical period, d) actually no longer existing craftmanships, e) diacronic analysis of communities, where possible. In this scenery the authors will introduce the methodology they employed for data analysis. Tables and graphs will be used to better focus different moments and results of work. The authors give the English translation of the terms extracted from the Corpus (see Appendix Glossary).
