In this paper, whose purpose is to recall Renata Gaddini’s work, the author reflects on the concept of the precursors of the Transitional Object (OT), one of the most original and significant contributions of Renata Gaddini. Through an exploration of the various conceptualizations by Winnicott and Klein, the paper investigates the destiny of the transitional object in its relationship with illusion and symbolization, as well as underlining how it differs from the fetish. This leads to a consideration of the clinical and technical consequences regarding the concepts of transitional object, transitional phenomena and transitional area.
