Identità inquieta

The publication in 1900 of Sigmund Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams revealed new fields to explore regarding the images and drives that reside in a psyche that has women and sexual desire at its epicentre. Whilst this completely changed how the family and the relationship between the sexes is perceived, it was the massive introduction of women into the workplace, brought about by the First World War, that led to an irreversible structural transformation in the social and cultural fabric of the country.
