Multilingualism brings about a number of positive linguistic, cognitive, and social advantages to students and people with a diverse linguistic and cultural background Cenoz and Gorter, The pedagogical implication that derives from this is that we should recognize, accept, and reinforce the link between languages and create softer boundaries between them.
One of the names coined to define such a practice is translanguaging Cenoz and Gorter, Originality and creativity are typical characteristics of translanguaging. Users of different languages naturally resort to their entire language repertoire. Holistic language knowledge and metalinguistic awareness are familiar realities to them and should be the guidelines of reference when organizing pedagogical activities in class. This session welcomes research experiences that address the concept of translanguaging in Italian language pedagogy.

Ricordando Clara Sereni Irony is one of the most debated terms in academic theory, difficult to read in its multifacetedness and ambivalence.
