Expert in Ethnographic Field-Research with interviews to old people in rural/alpine areas
Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My name is Lidia Dutto, Im 52 and Im an independent free-lance researcher. I have been interviewing old
people in rural and alpine areas in Piedmont (Northern Italy) for 15 years and have collected data in the
ancient cultural heritage (such as, rural beliefs in witches, wolves, the moon, the weather forecasts,
including customs about marriage, death, sexual behaviours, etc.... to sum up the alpine life in the past
century). I have published 4 books up to now and are still continuing my field-research (at present, Im
interviewing very old people about the healing practices in an alpine area).
My 4 books are included in my website: www.lelinguetraduzioni.com (please click on pubblicazioni).
