Abstract The paper investigates the role of Intercultural Mediation in health care settings as a form of dialogue interpreting and its role in giving voice to cultural minorities with a focus on the construction of affective support (Baraldi & Gavioli 2007, Zorzi & Gavioli 2009) and on the pragmatic emotive competence of the mediator.

The data consist of recorded conversations collected in 2010 at the Istituti Ospedalieri of Cremona (Italy) in naturally occurring bilingual encounters involving a female indian mediator, a female patient and doctor (Pignataro 2012). Observations will be presented regarding the emotive communication and the role played by the mediator in contribuiting in co-constructing meanings.
