State violence generally is connected to totalitarian regimes and dictatorships that violate human rights. Conversely, scientific literature is poor in state violence practiced in democratic societies. The aim of this article is to fill this gap by analyzing the events occurs during the G8 summit in Genoa of July 20-22, 2001, during which, according to international observers, there has been the most serious suspension of human rights in a Western country after World War Two. Through a criticism of the diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), by articulating the concepts of social delegitimization, psychopolitical trauma, and therapy of testimony, a contextual analysis of the trauma suffered by victims during the violence of the G8 summit is suggested.
Keywords: State violence, psycho-political trauma, social delegitimization, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), disability
