Interpretation and psychoanalytic frame: the contribution of Enzo Codignola - Enzo Codignola’s book The True and the False. Essay on the Logical Structure of Psychoanalytic Interpretation (Turin: Boringhieri, 1977) originated from discussions among colleagues of Psicoterapia e Scienze Umane since 1962, and can be considered one of the most important Italian contributions on the theory of psychoanalytic interpretation. It was translated in German in 1986 with a preface by Paul Parin, and in English in 1987 with an introduction by Paolo Migone. Here part of Migone’s introduction to the English edition (with the summary of the book), and two interventions (by Alessandro Ancona and Marianna Bolko) that introduced a panel on this book and appeared in issue no. 2, 1979, of Psicoterapia e Scienze Umane, are reprinted. Codignola’s conceptualization on the strict link between interpretation and frame of the psychoanalytic situation is discussed.
