A teacher with a child’s gaze. To generate the unprecedented. I desire to share memories that are emerging after the passing of Francesco Berto (8th May 1934-8th July 2020), psycho-socioanalyst and member of Ariele. The meeting between Berto and Pagliarani is the background of this story. In this human and professional, intellectual and emotional story, emerge the settings of thoughts where Berto applied his psycho-socioanalytic approach. Educational world, parents consulting, professional formation of social workers were his focus. He wrote several books about those topics. Berto’s theoretical and practical research certifies a model of phsyco-socioanalitic learning able to make emerge the unconscious and to use the group to re-elaborate it. He taught us a lot and now is up to us to spread his heritage. To make this happen I put in this text words from friends and colleagues from across the psycoanalytic and psyco-sociaoanalytic world that, knowing of his passing, sent me some thoughts that recognize Berto’s excellent approach with children and adults, inside and outside the classroom, face to face or in a group.
