The essay focuses on Sicily’s contribution to the processing of practices and policy of plague control in the context of the 16th century. When the plague struck Palermo in 1575, the municipal health authority took important provisions to control the disease and organized an effective public health emergency management, under the direction of the famous physician Giovanni Filippo Ingrassia. The study aims to review the general opinion of Sicily’s delay compared to more advanced health systems in the northern and central Italian cities.
