FIASCONI of Teramo (city), Morro D'Oro and Notaresco

Italian Genealogy Forums: Province of Teramo

One of my ancestors Francesco Fiasconi, born 6 Dec 1858 in the provincial capital "Teramo", was a "foundling" who was put on one of the wheels "la ruota" located in the wall of a hospice or orphanage.

Is there anyone else who has discovered this about their ancestor? Apparently up to 10% of the babies born at that time were given up to the authorities for various reasons. Of the babies given up, up to approximately 80% died within the first year.
