Since the 12th century, there has been a German speaking enclave in Northern Italy, called the “Zimbern”. They are as vulnerable to the rapid changes of the modern world as their language, which has already become the subject of the regional museum. On the weekend flocks of tourists, who come primarily from Verona and its surroundings, descend on the area. Mass tourism and industry create new lifestyles, and also new food. It is only to a few of the elders that time seems to stand still. Peter Schreiner listens to what they have to say, persuades them to speak a few words in their ancient language.
