Writing skills are a founding pillar of the linguistic-communicative competence of the L2 speakers, which requires a long process of learning and teaching. Based on a corpus analysis of texts written by 24 Chinese learners of Italian, this paper aims to explore whether elements attributable to construction models of the text typical of L1 affect the writing of second language and its embodiment.

The conclusion offers the result of the analysis with some reflections on teaching writing in Italian for Chinese students
