Italian psychiatry in three "movements" - Valeria P. Babini’s book Liberi tutti. Italia e psichiatria nel Novecento [Free Everybody. Italy and Psychiatry in the XX Century] (Bologna: Il Mulino, 2009) are pre-published. In the first one ("Miss Helen") the important role of Morselli for Italian psychiatry in the 1930s is exemplified with the description of a case of dissociative disorder that he treated following Jaspers’ e Minkowski’s phenomenological approach. In the second one ("Regarding the The Snake Pit") the debate on mental asylums of the late 1940s is reconstructed, with the reactions to a well known movie that stirred up the interest of journalists and psychiatrists. The third one ("Revisited themes, pioneers, vanguards") focuses on a pivotal period of Italian psychiatry when in the late 1950s new approaches appeared (such as art therapy) and some young psychiatrists migrated to France, Switzerland, Germany, England, and USA in order to learn new therapeutic techniques.)" />
