Abstract
An increasing number of studies have been analyzing Italian and Spanish in a contrastive key. Despite this, we have observed that there are still many areas to be explored, including the analysis of a large number of phraseological units. For this reason (but not only) we will study, in a contrastive key with Spanish, the Italian collocations which include five colors, namely, black, white, blue, yellow and red. We want to know if some Italian collocations can be literally translated into Spanish and, moreover, if these two cultural universes, which are theoretically so similar, use the same colors in similar contexts or if there are significant differences between these two languages.
