Luigi Pio Tessitori (Udine 1887– Bikaner 1919)
An inspiring Italian story of transcultural understanding
in the name of language, archaeology and photography
Prof. Furio HONSELL
Mayor of the City of Udine

    Luigi Pio Tessitori, was a very talented young Italian scholar in Indology, who made a name for himself in 1909 in Europe when he published his doctoral dissertation on the Rāmacaritamānasa of Tulasī Dāsa and the Old Baiswārī (Avadhī) language. His thesis attracted the attention of Sir George Grierson, director of the Linguistic Survey of India at the time, who entrusted him with important projects on behalf of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. This brought Tessitori to India in 1914, first to Calcutta and later to Jodphur and Bīkāner, where he worked also under Sir John Marshall on behalf of the Archaeological Survey of India. Tessitori was an extremely active and dedicated researcher who fell in love deeply with India and its culture. His life was very short but extremely intense, both as a scholar and as a field researcher.
