Using frame analysis, this article reconstructs the migratory narratives prevalent in Italian newspapers and television news in 2018 and 2019. The purpose of the survey was to describe the media frames of immigration in Italy and to understand whether and in what way these frames are widespread and rooted in public opinion. The research employed framing theory and methods inductive for the description of media frames and deductive for the analysis of the frequency of media frames, and an analysis of public perceptions of immigration developed through focus groups. We found that the iconic, linguistic and metaphorical characteristics of media frames constitute the most common interpretative keys in the public representation of the migratory phenomenon in Italy.
