abstract

This paper aims to analyze the comic strip character called Zenovena (or Genovena), created by the comedian Carlos Henrique Iotti, circulating in newspapers and periodicals in southern Brazil since 1983. Zenovena is a typical descendant of Italian immigrants in southern Brazil that was raised in the colony (countryside), but that has been transformed over the years. These changes promote inner conflicts that end up being a source of humor. She is married to Radicci, also a descendant of Italian immigrants and the mother of the young Guilhermino. He is a college student, an environmentalist, a surfer and an inventor, in contrast to the peasant logic of his parents. Zenovena becomes a woman in flight (of herself) whilst reviewing her values, models and patterns in a reflexive and dialogued way.
