Strategie di trasmissione del sapere nelle prime guide Baedeker

Tania Baumann


The paper analyses - from a functional-communicative approach - the first Baedeker guide books (1842-1866) dedicated to Italy, with the aim of highlighting the communicative strategies used for transmitting information and advice to the German traveller about the tourist destination. Knowledge transmission is always based on the grounds of the sender and receiver’s common Weltwissen, including current discourse on Italy. The analysis focuses on recurring linguistic-textual structures such as stereotypes, comparison and exemplification.
