The author begins with considering the wars that originate a forced era- dication of an indefinite number of people; she reflects on the pain related to leaving the country of origin, on the difficult decision to undertake a journey along unknown roads where the unpredictable can take place. A journey in search of a land that can lead to the hope of a new life, but also exposes you to serious risks. A new life in which it is not easy to access and where the people are often ignored and radicalized. A new world that exposes them to the risk of losing their cultural roots and measures them with other languages, religions and customs. The author proposes, in the wake of the clinical thou- ght of Bleger and Kaës, to pay close attention not so much to their poor saying but rather to the unsaid part of the immemorial of their experiences. This focus on the unsaid, with "anguished imagination", can bring closer the fragility, the emotional suffering, the voids, the absences, the loss of identity that torments these people and helps them not to lose confidence in themselves. The author also reflects on the difficult encounter with the Other in particular focusing on the theme of the stranger, of the otherness, of the non-me, on the ancient, original fear connected to the hermitage of the human mammal.
