Diaspora contexts work as a device that produces multiple and heterogeneous subjectivities. In the case of the crypto-­‐‑Jewish or marrano families from Iberia, such psychosocial pictures, that also generates the diaspora, are turned into allegory, such as in the Miguel Torga'ʹs short story O “Alma-­‐‑Grande”. In this fictional picture, with factual aspects, we'ʹll reflect upon the existential field of a buffer and the multicultural and intergenerational negotiations made between such character and a family, in which childhood is central perspective. Such negotiations occur in the attempt of preserving certain facility, and at the same time, move the traditions to the transversal identities dimension.
