Abstract

Examining the Piedmontese area where the exposed children from St. John Hospital in Turin were put out to nurse in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the authoress identifies the mechanisms of relationships and patronage regulating the distribution of this primary source of wealth in a depressed country area. This survey throws ligth on the different intermediary agencies connecting charitable institution to community and supervising, through social and geographical selection, the access to a considerable flow of money. Aside from its economic role as extra income of the family budget, wet-nursing, pacing the intergestation intervals, seems to benefit a class impoverished by excessive land- parcelling through a reduction of its reproduction-rate. But the baliotti's role in their adoptive community doesn't come to an end when the nursing period is over: having grown up they will supply servants and husbands liable to be integrated in the family strategies of hereditary transmission.
