This volume reconstructs Carlo Livi (1823-1877)’s biography, focusing on his medical and psychiatric work and on his path as a man and intellectual who lived during the Italian Risorgimento. Livi was a key figure in Italian psychiatry, halfway between the therapeutic optimism of the early 19th century and the pessimism of post-Darwinian psychiatry, both in the practical aspects and in the theoretical elaboration. The study highlights how, in this case, the moral treatment applied by 19th century psychiatry throughout Europe is linked to the events of the Italian Risorgimento. The moralizing and educational request, as well as the anthropological study of the human being, were aimed at the sick, the insane, at children, at criminals and the Italian people in order to carry out a national and secular project of social regeneration in Italy.

Il volume ricostruisce la biografia di Carlo Livi (1823-1877) focalizzandosi sulla sua opera medico-psichiatrica e sul suo percorso di uomo e di intellettuale vissuto durante il Risorgimento. Livi fu una figura chiave della psichiatria italiana, a metà strada – nella pratica e nell’elaborazione teorica – tra l’ottimismo terapeutico del primo Ottocento e il pessimismo della psichiatria post-darwiniana. Lo studio evidenzia come il trattamento morale applicato dalla psichiatria ottocentesca in tutta Europa si intrecci in questo caso con le vicende risorgimentali. L’istanza moralizzatrice ed educativa e lo studio antropologico dell’uomo erano rivolti ai malati, ai pazzi, ai bambini, ai criminali e al popolo per realizzare un progetto nazionale e laico di rigenerazione sociale del paese.
