The present article shows a practical example of intercultural oriented didactics of Deutsch als Fremdsprache. As the didactic unit chosen, a comparison of text types, in which the text dimension gives the opportunity to analyze culturems at many different description levels of the language system. With a text type chosen, namely, the curriculum vitae, being the CV as a textual form of expression which students sooner or later in their professional careers are due to be confronted with. The diversity of cultural characteristics in the typical German and Italian CVs are empirically evaluated by taking into consideration a corpus of texts in the two languages collected on the internet. The method of analysis derives from text-linguistic theories, aiming to show which are the possibilities for the DaF didactics to define on a scientific ground its research object, in order to avoid the risk of teaching notions of cultural specificity which cannot be clearly disassociated from cliches.
