The metaphor of the window - together with the visual-pictorial ones - is essential in the literary *mimesis*: the underlying question concerning the gap among different linguistic codes was first found in the French tradition and it has been further analyzed by recent literary studies. This important kind of metaphor appears in Verga's narrative and especially in his Milanese tales: it can be found both in relation to the meta-textual images used by the author and to the critical lexicon of the time. The analysis of the different framing values and the related features leads to focus on the theoretical contradiction of realism (between the ambition to adhere to things and the indisputable need to preserve the bonds of the work) and to see the specific evolution of Verga's art and work, in relation to these issues and their European scope.
