Misia Character Analysis

Misia is Pampinea’s maid. Along with Liscia, her mistress puts her in charge of the kitchen after the brigata leaves Florence. She’s responsible to carry out Parmeno’s instructions for meals. Her antique-sounding name is drawn from classical Roman plays and serves to indicate her subservient role as well as to emphasize the tales’ timelessness.
