The paper aims to analyze the culiolian background of Minisemantica (henceforth, MS). It is one of the most important theoretical work of Tullio De Mauro. As we will show, MS adopted two distinct but related concepts of the metalinguistic culiolian repertoire: a) the concept of «epilinguistic activity»; b) the concept of «enunciative space». The paper is divided into three parts. The first one is devoted to analyze the general architecture of MS. The second part is about the culiolian concepts. Finally, the third one seeks to identify some significant traces of the culiolian linguistics in more recent De Mauro’s works.
