Traditional Mediterranean architecture shares the myth of white with classical monumental architecture and the Modern Movement. It is a chromatic ideal which, despite numerous studies, persists over time and in the collective imagination even in Spain, in spite of the chromatic variety it actually possesses. Therefore, the main objective of the article is to try to understand the origin of the myth of white in traditional Mediterranean Spanish architecture, whose influence is of great relevance in the architectural proposals of the international and national Modern Movement, as well as its demystification, highlighting its true material nature and the various chromatic semantics that characterise it in close connection with the territory.
Keywords: colour; mimesis; differentiation
