This work, in line with the evolution of the epistemological systemic psychotherapy focuses the attention on the dimension of family myths, the deepest and hidden level more than the one of the interaction models which can be directly observed in families. This legendary level collects access of family therapy, following the first cybernetic, at the deepest level of the individual’s inner world and their families, the so-called "black box". In addition, the same legendary level is found to be current thanks to the multiple interconnections with the field of neuroscience, linking psychological and relational aspects with the neurobiological substrate. Finally, it is highlighted the usefulness of the analogue language in psychotherapy through the technique of "Sculptures of Family Time".
