Abstract

[This chapter exemplifies the dual function of the protagonist, who is presented both as subject and object of compassion, thereby showing the numerous methods in which women contributed in World War II. Seen as both an external and an internal capability to behave wisely, compassion is the apparatus to idealize a precise figure of woman. In offering and accepting compassionate reactions, Agnese exemplifies a variety of opportunities for reviewing old perceptions. Viganó’s work suggest that the new Italian identity should value emotional ability and recognize the legitimacy of conflict resolutions and a willingness to scrutinize them in an environment of compassionate understanding since this approach opens pathways to creative problem-solving.]
