Instead of summarizing part 2 , I wanted to focus on one section of part 2 that i thought was interesting. Marguerite asks, “Are we lovers” two times in short period of time to Massimo. This shows me that she is very confused and unsure of what shes doing. I think throughout the section, Marguerite is trying to find herself and what path in life she should take. Another part of the section that portrays her relationships is how naive Alberto is. When Tina states that her mother was going out with her boyfriend, Alberto laughed as if this could never happen. This shows me that since she came back to him it put a false sense of trust between Marguerite and Alberto that acted as a veil over his eyes in the middle of part 2. I believe Barolini purposedly did this to make an interesting ironic situation.
