Giulio Benedetti is a theorist in the field of Psycholinguistics. He took his university degree in medicine at the University of Pisa. He comes from Silvio Ceccato’s school, the Scuola Operativa Italiana [Italian Operational School]. After a deep critical revision, started in 1997, of Ceccato’s thought, he has introduced substantial modifications and wide enlargements.
