This dissertation deals with the diffusion in the Mediterraneum area of the Neolitic culture, by an historical and geographical point of view. In this study we also consider as the agriculture and sheep-breeding have their place of origin in the Middle East and as these agricultural practice reached Sicily and spread over the island. The Siculian sheep-breeding, veiled also by mythology, got a great productive impulse, specially for the production and transformation of milk in cheese. The Sicilian sheep’s cheese became objet of commercial exchange in the most important markets and specially in the market of Rome, overcoming the demands of the local cheese.
