Abstract

The Italian Psychiatry was born when Europe is attempting to organize, from consolidation of the hegemony of the bourgeois class, specialized structures for particular groups of people (prisons, Civil and Psychiatric Hospitals, orphanages). In November 1908 the County Council of Genova, approved the general plan of the provincial asylum in Pratozanino, near Cogoleto. It can accommodate 2,400 people. The national law (1904) stating that people affected by mental pathology must be kept in custody and treated in mental hospitals when they are dangerous to themselves or to others, or create public scandal: a new era for construction of large settlements has begun.
