The small volume (160 pages, with preface by Augusto De Luca) transports the reader into the psychologist’s office, through the illustrations of the young artist from Procida Valentino De Luca: thus, blunders and slips of the tongue collected by Salvio Esposito in his long practice as a psychotherapist parade by, while discomfort and suffering give way to lightness.
In fact, unexpected smiles and even laughter erupt on the bed.

How is it possible that what makes us suffer also makes us laugh?

Sigmund Freud himself – writes Augusto Guarino in the preface – understood that it is what makes us laugh “the emergence of something that belongs to us but which has been repressed by society or removed into the unconscious, and which therefore would no longer be speakable”.
The following intervene with the author: the president of Coni Campania, Sergio Roncelli; the president of the Italian Rugby Federation (Fir) Campania Giuseppe Calicchiothe Old rugby advisor Alessandro Basile, the illustrator Valentino De Luca and the publisher Donatella Gallone. With the extraordinary participation of ROSALIA PORCARO.

At 7.45pm, copy signing: the author will donate the proceeds from the sale of the books to the project Escape rugby.

At 8pm, Third Period.
