Our paper is focused on reflecting and describing some aspects of political discourse in the Italian political community. Its aim is to identify, analyse and interpret examples of political metaphorical expressions introduced by Italian politicians that have become emblematic and have entered common Italian discourse. With regard to a terminological vacuum we also attempt to show the ongoing word-borrowing process across various language areas that contributes to the development of terminology in political discourse.
