In this brief essay, I go through the different steps of a linguistic research I have conducted about metaphors in Italian novels by non-native-italophone writers. The focus of the research was to identify the path, if any, of the metaphors and images transfer from one’s conceptual/cultural native language to the language chosen for one’s artistic literal purpose. My former linguistic analysis passed through formal considerations about metaphors: how one can recognize them within a sentence, both by means of their patterned syntagma and by means of their figurative significance. Now, it urges to return on the obtained results and start new cultural reflections about them. Seen at a distance, actually, they are revealing unforeseeable aspects that, through and with language, contribute to describe a profound evolution in the way Migrations Literature, and migration itself, is conceived and described, and moreover, how much it seems that the starting point of scholars studying this phenomenon may have changed.
