I'd be extremely grateful for as full a translation as possible of this birth record for David Dormidello dated 3 Jul 1888.

In the year 1888, 3rd of July, 4:30 in the afternoon, in the Municipal House.
Before me, Stefano Lacorte, secretary delegate for the mayor with ___ March 3rd 1887 _____________, official of the civil state of the community of Bellagio, appeared Tranquilla Montini, 28 years old, midwife, living in Bellagio, who declared to me that at 5 am, on the 2nd of this month, in the house located at Borgo no. 100something, from a woman that she doesn't _____ named (although I cannot read the middle word here, it appears for some reason the mother's name is not mentioned, which the secretary is acknowledging), was born a male child that was presented to me, and to whom was given the name Davide and the surname of Dormidello. To the above and to this act were present Bassana Ghilardi, 40 years old, maestro?, and Raimonda Cranchi, 27 years old __profession__ both residents in this town.

The bottom is a very messy handwriting and very difficult to read, but it starts by saying "This said baby comes to me sent from B___trofio??" and the next line mentions something about the said declarant and the last word of that line is "incarcerata," meaning imprisoned (in the feminine)...not really sure what this says though because unfortunately the handwriting is difficult for me to read.

Hope that helps though, it's a rather unusual birth document without parents listed on it...
