Starting from a clinical report about M.’s story and the revenge porn crime that he committed after the end of the relationship with his partner, the author proposes a reinterpretation in a relational-systemic view looking at the function of the symptoms and a possible scenario of intervention for the therapeutic project. After an initial phase aimed to reinterpret the revenge as extreme pain of loss and the impossibility to handle separation grief, it could be supposed a widening of convocations that involves also M.’s parents, re-living the ritual of preparing the backpack, allowing him to lead the journey towards the differentiation.

Keywords: separation; revenge; abandonment; genogram; differentiation.
