Paul Scheuermeier

The farmer Umbria, photographed between 1924 and 1930, as it should have been fifty or one hundred years before, as it was from the end of the second post-war period, when a silent revolution began, destroying a millenary tradition.
Paul Scheuermaier with his long research , that started in 1919 and brought him all around the Central and Southern Italy for an anthropological research that involved our whole nation- Gerhard Rolf studied the South and Max Leopold Wagner analysed Sardinia- has described with pictures and textes an ancient civilization just before its extinction.
The study was carried out in the context of a fundamental linguistical research, that now represents the basis of the Ethnographic Atlas of Italy and Southern Switzerland, and is now an excellent reference point for the researches in the traditional world of farmers.
