This article presents a brief review of aims and motives of the intercultural studies in the German speaking countries. The goal is to evaluate methods and perspectives which could be applied in the field of German studies in Italy. In Germany, intercultural studies have obtaines academic recognition especially since the early Nineties of the 20th Century. Being grounded on a anthropological concept of culture, their orientation is typically interdisciplinary. The expansion of the culture oriented critical discourse regenerates an old theoretical tradition (Humboldt), in the framework of which the conceptual links between the principles of interculture and culture are on one side, and culture and language on the other, are a manifest postulate for the theory and praxis of language teaching. On the contrary, it shall not be obvious how to determine the object of the disciplinary field German as a Foreign Language from the cultural point of view, and also on a scientific basis. In its final section, this article evaluates possible methodological means of determining linguistic “culturems” for didactic purposes.
