In this volume, the use of the interpretative model of the middle ground and the cultural concept of "porosity" shows that it is the indigenous community and the Greek ones are redefined in different ways in different spatial and temporal contexts and adapted their identity structure to various circumstances from the point of view of a "cultural ecology", the space in which they operated the indigenous reality and greek-siceliote those was inevitably shared.
