Learn to Identify was born as a publication of research from the modern
socio-cutural context on the criminological investigations of Cesare
Lombroso, compiled in the editorial work ‘el uomo delinquente’, 1876.
Thanks to Darwin’s atavistic theory, scientists such as Lombroso,
conceived and solidified the white man and the upper middle class as
the only model of ethical, moral, and political purity in existence.
In an age where scientists such as Freud, Darwin or Guillaume
Deuchenne pioneered studies of man, the unconscious, and genetic-
biological ancestry, Lombroso defined the criminal’s profile through
research among prisoners in Italian prisons.
The conception of crime
in an innate and genetic way, detectable in the physiognomy aspects
of the person. A study subsequently disqualified Lombroso’s theory
for the lack of clear evidence and poorly contrasted results.
Learn to Identify debates the political and cultural manipulation of
parties and government forces with conservative and discriminatory
discourses, where studies and pseudoscience are often used as
xenophobic and racist weapons, with the obvious manipulation of the
population with scientifically loose speeches, which force the most
progressive forces to constantly fight to prevent discrimination based
on physical or identity issues.
