Abstract

According to Calvino, one of the most difficult – yet, unavoidable – challenges literature has to face is its «ancient desire to represent the multiplicity of relationships, both in effect and in potentiality», which would allow to obtain (and therefore, to offer) «a manifold and multifaceted vision of the world». In his perspective, this is necessary in order to achieve a fuller knowledge of reality. Once the so-called “liberal myth” and the deeply ideological nature of its apparently neutral and abstract model – essentially based on assimilation and exclusion – had been identified and demystified, the law had to deal with multiplicity, a process that is still very much on-going.
