The essay highlights the constitutional evolution of Sicily, tracing it back to the British Mediterranean constitutionalism and the condition of the insularity of Sicily: starting from the «ephemeral constitution of 1812», passing through the «inconclusive revolution of 1820» and reaching the «glorious revolution» and the Constitution of 1848, then to the fundamental Charter never born, such as the Statute of 1860, up to the Autonomist Statute of 1946. The latter constitutes the reference of the Sicilian special autonomy in republican Italy, among roots, intuitions, and contradictions.
