EMMA REPRESENTS THE INNACETTABLE NORMALITY FOR MARCELLO
Emma is a normal woman who is not part of the VIP world that Marcello dreams of.
She offers herself with all her love to Marcello, sometimes even in a maternal way, sometimes pleading for his love, but her great obsession is to be aware that she can not offer Marcello what he wants.
Marcello loves her, but he knows that she is the greatest obstacle to the realization of his dream of sweet life and that becomes his great obsession
Emma will try several times to leave Marcello because he can not accept reality, but she will still believe his lies. She will believe Marcello when he tells him that he loves her. She does it because she can not imagine a life different from that with Marcello, but also Marcello, in turn, understands that Emma is his real face hidden by the many masks he wears.
And for this reason, he will never leave her
