The article focuses on the topic of collective perception and the literary representation of the relationship between the white man and the native woman in fascist Italy. The sexist undertone of propaganda songs from the time of the Second Italian-Ethiopian War soon was in contradiction with the rising racist views in Italian society that led to the compulsory segregation of white and indigenous people in the colonies. The stereotypical image of an indigenous woman as a domestic animal or beast appears in both trashy and high literature. The masculine figure has an interesting development: a new fascist man, the conqueror is finally replaced by the passive inetto, a type that has been enforced in the Italian literature during modernism.
