Pulcinella: Image of the Forgotten Trickster

a lecture by Grazia Di Giorgio

October4th, 2019 at 7:15 p.m.            

As Carl Jung wrote in 1959, “The so-called civilized man has forgotten the trickster… He never suspects that his own hidden and apparently harmless shadow has qualities whose dangerousness exceeds his wildest dreams. As soon as people get together in masses and submerge the individual, the shadow is mobilized, and, as history shows, may even be personified and incarnated.” (CW 9.1, par. 478)

In this presentation we will be invited to remember and explore the historical development, the dangerousness, and the contemporary healing potential of this powerful archetype, starting from the ancient and fascinating figure of Pulcinella, a mercurial character from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte whose roots go all the way back at least to the Roman Atellanae ofthe IV century BCE.

Grazia Di Giorgio, M.A., L.P.C.is a Jungian Analyst with a background in Political Science and Performing Arts, and a long-standing interest in contemplative and somatic psychotherapy. A graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado, she currently shares her life and professional practice between Italy and the United States.
