Gino’s group senseThis work invites readers to appreciate Gino Pagliarani’s remarkable ability to work on here and now, a relational dimension that has been pointed out as fundamental for the group process in other texts, as well, and here is meant as the foundation of negative capacity. Pagliarani’s working method reminds the present author of a number of technical aspects to which in-depth study has already been devoted by empiric research on group therapy, although Pagliarani has not written much about or worked much with actual therapeutic groups. Special attention is given to the inevitable link between beauty and the constitutively chimeric and protean aspects of groups, as well as the relationship between metempsychosis and somatopsychosis. After a technical note on the therapeutic community, the article concludes with a reflection on Pagliarani’s position in regard to pyshoanalysis and group analysis. Keywords: psychosocioanalysis, group analysis, Luigi (Gino) Pagliarani.
