Italian contributions to psychology go back to the 19th century, to the work of C. Lombroso (1876), R. Ardigo (1870), Mosso (1884), and many others. The first Italian psychological journal, Rivista di Psicologìa, was established by G. C. Ferrari in 1905. Between 1910 and 1945 the old universities in Rome, Florence, and Turin, and the new ones in Padua and Milan actively pursued psychological studies in several fields and in diverse points of view, such as positivism, foundationalism, Gestalt, behaviorism, and psychoanalysis.
