Renata Mambelli’s novel Argentina (2009) belongs to the overall discourse on the history of the Italian migration to Argentina. Such a subject emerged in Italian literature beginning from the nineties, with the purpose of representing the silent and unknown flow of people from one country to the other. A female novel, Argentina deals with the theme of Italian emigration during the thirties by embracing a gender perspective. The heart of the representation is the migrant’s creatural dignity. By restoring the voice of women and mothers – the key figures in her narrative – Mambelli tackles them of marginality. The symbolic articulation of the protagonist’s migration exposes mythemes such as giving birth, home, roots.
