Identity and Trauma: the centenary of the Marsica earthquake read in a psychodynamic key
The history of modern Marsica unfolds on two basic events: the drying up of Lake Fucino and the earthquake of '15. Events totally dissimilar between them, for the elementary consideration that the first was the work of man (politician, administrator or entrepreneur who was) and the second was the work of nature. But these two events, moreover temporally close, conferred perhaps a unique relief to the territory that had been subject to it, and despite their etiological diversity, they presented two mirror effects: an upheaval of identities and a loss of the memory of the roots (G. Nicoli). In this seminar we will propose an a posteriori psychodynamic reading of the events from the end of the 800th century to the beginning of the 900th century, attempting to size the impact of these on the population of the Abruzzo hinterland.
