The Unification of ancient Egypt con be approached from a double perspective: on the one hand, the dynamics and processes can be outlined according to which the great Formal tradition was codified and imposed to the expense of the local ones; on the other, the selfreferenced model of unified Egypt, expressed in the visual and written form of the Sema Tawy and in the later narrative of the myth of the contending between Horus and Seth, can usefully be explored in its retrospective and prospective value as a powerful ideological medium apt to produce, communicate and reinforce the consciousness of collective identity.
