Enzo Bonaventura’s "Psychoanalysis": Importance of his thinking, history of a repression. Enzo Joseph Bonaventura (1891-1948) was one of the most authoritative figures of experimental psychology and psychoanalysis in Italy between the two World Wars. Expelled from the University of Florence because of the Italian "Racial Laws", he moved to Jerusalem where he played an important role in the development of academic psychology research in Israel. Before leaving Italy, Bonaventura wrote a summary of Freudian ideas (La psicoanalisi. Milan: Mondadori, 1938), which can be considered a classic, and which is revisited in this paper also in order to reconstruct a painful historical period that has been partly forgotten.
