dc.description.abstractIn 1840, a French alienist, or psychiatrist, Joseph Guillaume Desmaisons Dupallans, visited a number of Italian asylums with the objective of discovering the best solution for the institute he was planning to set up in the vicinity of Bordeaux. This book comprises an Italian translation of the notes he made on this trip, conserved in a manuscript in the library of the former psychiatric hospital of San Salvi (Florence). Offering an extremely precise and detailed review of the structures visited, the work is a fascinating and important source for the reconstruction of the history of the institutes for the insane in Italy and also for the history of psychiatry itself.

oapen.abstract.otherlanguageNel 1840, un alienista francese, Joseph Guillaume Desmaisons Dupallans, compì un viaggio nei manicomi d'Italia per individuare quale potesse essere la soluzione migliore, a cui ispirare l'istituto che avrebbe costruito nei pressi di Bordeaux. Il volume pubblica in traduzione italiana gli appunti di tale ricognizione, conservati in un manoscritto presso la biblioteca dell'ex Ospedale psichiatrico di San Salvi (Firenze). Proponendo una rassegna estremamente precisa e dettagliata delle strutture visitate, l'opera rappresenta una fonte importantissima per la ricostruzione della storia degli Istituti per alienati in Italia e uno strumento per la stessa storia della psichiatria.
