Italian Ethnological Mission in Mexico

‘Italian Ethnological Study in Mexico’.

Sapienza University in Roma, Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, 00185 Roma (RM), Italy.

Operational since 1973 and led by Prof. Alessandro Lupo, the work involves the study of indigenous practices: the construction, protection and affirmation of indigenous identity in contemporary Mexican society through the performance of traditional knowledge. Through the implementation of incorporated knowledge belonging to the indigenous tradition, the members of certain communities of central-eastern Mexico build spaces within the rapidly changing Mexican society for the creation of new opportunities for social integration and management of existential crises.
