A Psychoanalyst and Two Pseudonyms Language Translation

Adriana Pagnoni

In this very Rivista di Psicoanalisi I recently read Alberto Schön's review of Salvatore Dell'Io's book Come scegliere il vostro psicoanalista (How to Choose Your Psychoanalyst) and found it very interesting. I wrote and told Schön that his witty review was no less brillant than Salvatore Dell'Io's humorous and entertaining work. However I also told Schön that if I read it in one go, it was not just for amusement, but for research purposes too. I was looking for a final remark, which I hope would be the wittiest and most curious of all. But alas, this longed-for witticism was not to be found. I had to tell him it. We thus agreed that I myself could add it, as an afterthought. I think that “Salvatore Dell'Io” (Saviour of the Ego) is a nice pseudonym for a psychoanalyst, but it might be equally well-suited to a wise patient who was able to smile indulgently at other people's therapeutic ambitions.
