The language, a human species-specific activity, permits of knowing, organizing and recounting the reality that around us. Although the vocal level represents the preferred channel of expression, everyday experiences are shared in many ways in the community. Facial expressions, gestures, but in general, our action are reflection of the culture that has shaped us. In this paper, the authors report some considerations about the typical communication dynamics of a Secondary Reception Centre, in the context of the province of Avellino (Italy). The descriptive observation realised in the fieldwork, shows that a designed and oriented educational communication looks after of the distinctive characteristics of each. Consequently, a reflection on the individual and collective communication practices could allow overcoming the mere reception and predicting a real introduction into the social substratum of the Host Country.
