The study is focused on the representation of asulphur mine located in the heart of Sicily. Thelink between the outside plants and the underground network of galleries is intended as asymbol of the overlayed structure of the citiesand as a metaphor of the representation. Thedualism between apollynian and dyonisiac environments,that is open spaces under the light andunderground worlds, where obscurity is permanent, forces the search of proper representation techniques, capable of conveying the peculiarities of each realm. Three plates, drawn in an obsolete way, pencil on art board, try to explicit the complex relations underlying the structure of the mine and the role of the ‘technique’ of representation as an expressive mean, according to Heidegger’s definition. Finally, an analogy betweenthe labyrinth and some trends in contemporaryarchitecture, is proposed.
