Abstract

Starting from the assumption that space is a language and that food isalso a language, what we will try to show in this paper is how these two languages,together, carry specific concepts of animality. For this reason, we will focus on twodifferent places of food consumption that place animals at the centre of their proposaland that in recent years have spread in urban environments: cat cafés, wherecats are conceived as subjects to pet, endowed with a predominantly emotionalvalue, and dog restaurants, where dogs are in fact the real restaurant clients.
