Abstract: The text would relate Friedrich Nietzsche’s life and work to the italian psychiatric process of reform, carried out in person by Franco Basaglia. From the analysis of Nietzsche’s psychophysical disease and the different medical and psychiatric diagnoses on his person, or even to his thought, this article want to deny the causal link between his disease and its philosophy, saving his thought from the label of delirium: otherwise, it’s important to demonstrate that his philosophy was also his madness and vice versa. As a matter of fact, Foucault explain us that every will of truth on the subjects, such as the same psychiatric diagnosis, is an expression of the power that organizes and administers the bodies: the normalization is the anesthesia of the specific and individual needs. The will of truth of the psychiatric power is immediately connected to the orthopedic domestication of diversity. Thank to Basaglia, instead, psychiatry reached a point of no-return: he put in brackets the disease to focus on the person; made as prior the person and his existence on the institution; fought asylum as an element of chronicity and he is completely disinterested to the pursuit of diagnosis, as factor of exclusion of the subject from the social body. On the basis of these reflections, he dedicated his entire life to the total destruction of the asylum.
