Motif is shown throughout the novel by the repetition of imagination and fear. The author Ammaniti uses contrast between Antonio Natale and Michele Amitrano through personalities, and the child world and adult world through challenges and obstacles. Contrast between Antonio and Michele is evident when Antonio demands Barbara Mura to show her genitals, as in Antonio’s perspective she lost the race, not Michele, so she must perform the forfeit. This is because Antonio has something against Barbara, so “his sadistic mind got to work” (page 19) and he decided on her to do something humiliating in front of all the other boys. This impacts the audience as they would feel disgusted with Antonio, and sympathy for Barbara.

Dido and Aeneas consummate in a cave after being trapped by a raging storm, and the great beast Rumor carries word of the deed across cities and kingdoms. “Rumor took an evil joy at filling the countryside with… gossip” (246-248), and the monster prayed on the vulnerability of the two lovers. The gossip weakened Dido and Aeneas’s image and turned many people against them, particularly against Queen Dido. Many of her former suitors were filled with rage at the thought of the queen not accepting them, yet allowing Aeneas to be her husband, although he was not. “Libyans and nomad kings detest me,” says Dido, “My own Tyrians are hostile… I lost my integrity.” (417-419).
