What's the difference between a witch (like Agostina) and a wisewoman (like Fiorenza)?

I love these stories.

>> What's the difference between a witch (like Agostina) and a wisewoman (like Fiorenza)? <<

It's not a hard-and-fast rule; they're synonyms. Some of what went into their terms:

* A witch can be solitary.
* Giacinto was introduced as a striòs which means witch-son, so his mother is logically a witch.

* A wisewoman serves a village.
* A wisewoman may have a wider range of skills.

Thank you!
