On: Letter from Turin

Co-editor Paolo Migone, M.D.

Dear Editors,

Anna Ferruta's Letter from Turin (IJP 95:195-203, 2014) contains some errors. On p. 196 “Paolo Perrotti” is mentioned as one of the founding fathers (together with Cesare Musatti and Emilio Servadio) of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI); while Perrotti's first name was Nicola, Paolo was his son. (In the same page there is also another, minor error: “Antonio Ferro” is mentioned, while Ferro's first name is Antonino).

These might be considered typos, while the third error is more important. On p. 195 Ferruta says that “a courageous publisher, Paolo Bollati, proposed to one of the founders of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, Cesare Musatti, that he should arrange for the Italian translation and publication of Freud's Complete Works (Freud, 1966-80) in 12 volumes”. That publisher was not Paolo Bollati, but Paolo Boringhieri, and the name of the publishing house was “Boringhieri” (Giulia Boringhieri [2010], Paolo's daughter, wrote a detailed and fascinating book on the history of this publishing house). Giulio Bollati (who, like Paolo Boringhieri, came from Einaudi, another very prestigious publishing house in Turin) entered into Boringhieri's publishing house only in 1987, when the name changed to “Bollati Boringhieri” (see Boringhieri P, 1989; Ranchetti, 1989).

Anna Ferruta, to this regard, might have added that Paolo Boringhieri not only published Freud's Complete Works but, among other things, also the Complete Works of Anna Freud, Jung, and Abraham.
