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.

While most Greek tragedies would involve the victim directly murdering the violator, Ino, Procne, and Medea defy this convention and instead use their children as pawns for revenge. Instead of murdering the enemy in cold blood, the loss of one’s children incites enough rage, sadness, and defeat to destroy anyone.
