The following contribution introduces a study on the titles of the texts produced by the students for the project In interiori puero. Titles are by themselves meaningful elements in the written production, as they reveal aspects concerning the cognitive processes of their writers. Specifically in this project, their choice implies an even more complex task, as they represent the synthesis between two different semiotic systems: the image proposed to the students as a stimulus for their productions and their written texts. A framework was defined for the analysis of the corpus in order to describe them under different perspective, both structural (Genette, 1987; Di Fazio, 1984) and semantic (Eco, 1980; Adorno, 1979), and define how a title can be considered as good or not. Finally, a chronological analysis, conducted under these perspectives, allowed the possibility to verify a possible evolution of the titles in time and check the fruitfulness of the practice of hand writing.
