The aim of this paper is to reconstruct the formation process of the urban identity of Scicli, a city in the southeastern part of Sicily, between the 16th and 18th century. In the analysis of this process there is an attempt to reconstruct not only the conflictual relationship among the main characters of the town and among the cities, but also the role that the literary, graphic and cartographic descriptions had. Documentary and iconographic sources become, therefore, useful evidences to piece together the complex relationship between the city, its territory and the societies of the past.
