CAMMEO, FEDERICO (1872–1939), Italian jurist. After studying at Pisa, his birthplace, Cammeo became lecturer in administrative law at the University of Cagliari. He taught civil procedure at the universities of Padua and Bologna (1906–12) and in 1913 became professor of administrative law at Bologna. Beginning in 1911, Cammeo published an annual survey of Italian administrative law, Commentario delle leggi sulla guistizia amministrativa. In his writings, which include Questioni di diritto amministrativo (1900) and Le manifestazioni di volontà dello stato (1901), Cammeo was the first Italian to base his study of administrative law on scientific principles. He was also an editor of Giurisprudenza Italiana. In 1932, on the invitation of Pius xi, he drafted a new set of administrative rules for the Vatican, entitled L'ordinamento giuridico dello Stato della Città del Vaticano. Shortly before his death, he was dismissed from his teaching posts at the University of Florence following the promulgation of the Italian antisemitic laws. His wife and daughter were deported to Auschwitz. His academic work has come to be highly esteemed for its emphasis on human rights.
