Dal reale alla fiaba, dalla fiaba al reale. Etica e dialettica dell'immaginario contemporaneo = From the real to the fairy tale, from the fairy tale to the real. Ethics and dialectics of the contemporary imagination


The aim of this paper is to underline the rule of imaginary in the contemporary fables, analyzing the 'dialectic of imagination' which moves from 'symbolic' to 'Real' and viceversa. Firstly, this work will focus on evolution of Disney's cinematic universe whose narrations became more 'real' in the last movies through the psychoanalytic introspection of each character - expecially the evil-ones. Secondly, the difference between hero's role in mythology and in classical fables will be compared, pointing out the psychoanalytic rapresentation, which is function and fondation of the freudian Super-Ego in fairytales.
