abstract

This contribution aims to investigate uses and characteristics of the ‘Sprarscape’, defined as the set of linguistic and semiotic objects that contribute to the visual organization of the centres where Sistema di Protezione per Richiedenti Asilo e Rifugiati (SPRAR) projects are active. Adopting an interdisciplinary perspective, which refers to studies on linguistic landscaping and language policy and planning, we describe these spaces through the use of innovative research tools. We also investigate their linguistic composition and the functions of the signs that structure them from an intercultural perspective. These include visual data and field notes, collected through ‘linguistic walks’, integrated with videos and a tourist-guide technique, analysed by means of a specifically-designed observation scheme.
