A new website documenting the history of psychology in Italy has been launched. The site, Archivi Storici della Psicologia Italiana (ASPI), provides online access to archival materials in the collections of a number of important Italian psychologists that are housed at The Reels (the Historical Archives of Italian psychology). The project is described as
an interdepartmental research center at the University of Milan-Bicocca aimed at conservation and development of primary sources relating to the history of Italian psychology, understood in all its manifestations: from the tradition of phenomenological psychology to legal psychology and social work to psychoanalysis and clinical psychology, psychology of cognitive processes to neuropsychology.
The Reels was created in 2005 following the first acquisition of the archive and library of Vittorio Benussi and Caesar Musatti. Later he acquired the important fund Giulio Cesare Ferrari and that of the sociologist Giancarlo Arnao.
The official unveiling of the site will take place on April 20th, at 5pm at the Palazzo Litta, Milan (Italy), Corso Magenta 24. The history of Italian psychology can be explored here.
