Recent spatial approach to Medieval Studies has pointed a new way to discuss the social patterns involved in the royalty and the government’s forms. Intent of this panel is to analyze the transformation of a political border as porous frontier for ideas, people, and cultural models beyond the control of political institutions or religious authorities. The study case will be the northern frontier of the Sicilian Kingdom, which allows us to explore the cultural and social connectivity in the region. Critical means will be the mutual and multilevel integration of the cultural sources, i.e. artistic, archeological, juridical ones.
