This article aims to promote interdisciplinary research between the history of accounting and that of architecture, and recognizes the different point of view that ancient accounting documentation offers to two scientific branches of study that only appear to be distant. The article analyses the surviving registries prepared during the renovation of the fortification of Crotone in Calabria (Italy) during the sixteenth century and, accordingly, it allows the reconstruction of a sufficiently broad outline of the architectural events that occur in a large building yard, connecting this intervention to an architectural history frame of reference that surpasses the limits of regional boundaries. At the same time, the specificity of the examined documentation has allowed us to identify the roles and the subjects assigned to keep accounts, within the complex system with which the disorderly Spanish administration managed its extremely vast dominion.
