In this article, we make use of semiotic tools and investigate figurative language in two film-texts: a case of metonymy in Cinema Paradiso and a metaphor in Il postino. The aims of this project are: a) to suggest an approach for subsequent applications of rhetoric notions to texts with a non-linguistically coded structure; b) to reveal the purpose of both rhetorical devices in the aforementioned film-texts.
