Slandered Medea, according to Mazur, who did not kill her children, is forced to remember the descendants of a terrible monster. Capulet is doomed to live with a sense of guilt for the death of young Juliet. Giacomina, being the most resilient and free of them, transmits this vitality and thirst for bright events to her daughter’s legacy.
