From the Kensington Gardens to Peter Pan’s Neverland, looking for the boy who did not want to grow up. Was he trying to overcome some trauma, denial or disillusionment, developing a sort of defensive amnesia in constant search for the missing mothering that any child should enjoy? An interpretation that sometimes makes our imagination fly to a colorful world though it may introduce a bitter and distressing vision of reality.

Keywords: Peter Pan, Neverland, Amnesia, Abandonment, Growth, Unconditional Love.
