The Western Mediterranean Sea is composed of a network of interconnected coastal areas. During the centuries, the most various actors have created a multifaceted arena in which emerged a rich and a various material and intangible cultural heritage. From Portugal to Italy, from Spain to Northern Africa, from France to Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Malta, it is possible to see how their archaeological, historical, cultural and ethnographic aspects are similar and comparable each other. Nevertheless, this consideration is the “tip of an iceberg” of complex processes of construction of distinctiveness of these territories. Unveiling and analyzing clearly defined events, longstanding practices and cross-cultural knowledge flow may help in defining and describing the specificity of the contexts or situations analyzed in a historical or ahistorical perspective. This session deals with the analysis of the exchanges and meeting, not only intended as export/import of goods (e.g. pottery, wheat, metals), but also as cultural import/export (e.g. traditions, life styles, building techniques, cults). Keywords: Sardinia, export/import, insularity, centrality, culture
