To build the house space means to build the space at which the man, bringing back himself, gives back his identity. The house is the narration of the mental space through the physical space, that is a third place where those two meet themselves and co-exist in symbiosis. All the Things that live the space are self-citations that the man uses to represent the world and to represent himself to the world. The relation that the man sets up with the space is always auto – referential, that is the world objectively perceived is always subjectively translated. Also in the modern space the man is at the center, that is at the origin of a tridimensional space, because all the Things that live in that space are in relation with him. One of the principles that regulates the reception of the external world is the relation that the subject sets up with the complex system of connections among the things that live in the space. An active relation in which the space is not absolute but relative to the subject. The spatial objectivity so is revealed through the subjective reception. Then we have an objective space made subjective. This space is characterized by the geometric process started in the three dimensions, at which original point is put the subject. The concept of geometric space, traditionally read as controlling space and hostile, artificial and unnatural, is reconsidered as the space necessary for the man. A space that does not control anymore, but a space that is measured and controlled by the man, and that is lived by his active and moving exploration. The coincidence of the spaces, geometric and lived, it is now given as a possible coincidence, from which that third space is born, put in between external and internal world, objectivity and subjectivityRATIONAL (Josè Mannu, Psychiatrist)
The construction of a space for the psychosis has always been a controversial topic in the face of a illness that characterizes itself, among the other things, for a remarked social isolation. The idea of Ronald Laing, famous English psychiatrist that with David Cooper has represented and sustained the ideas of the anti-psychiatry, was that the schizophrenic person needed a place in which he could express his entire personality. Franco Basaglia, the reformer of the Italian psychiatry – on the contrary – sustained that the identification of a space inevitably would have conducted to a state of chronicity. Basaglia used to say that there are not ideal spaces in which the personality of the people affected by psychosis could be expressed: every place is not a niche but inevitably it transforms itself in a cage. We do think that both of them were wrong and right at the same time. The places of the psychosis are chronicized, but not the places in itself as the relations that take place with them and that end up becoming a cage from which it is impossible to escape. But those places are also the mirror of the person and of his difficulties and if we manage to dialogue even with those spaces we can build something different. And so in the psychic sufferance not only the interaction between private space and public place becomes fundamental, but also the identifying definition of the spaces that have to be different and the sustaining of them has to be structured in a diversified way.
