The paper examines some elements of the linguistic history of Palermo in thedecades of straddling unification. In the foreground there is the link between practicesand images, both linked to either linguistic or spatial dimension. Through religiousand scholastic texts, city guides, changes in place names and in linguistic urbanlandscape, descriptions of anthropologists and linguists and their transcriptionalchoices, comes to the fore the moment of the imaginary city of Palermo, in the set ofrepresentations and ideas through which the urban society has built it’s self-portrait.
