Summary: This article aims to be a modest contribution to the old and never fully resolved polemic about the role of space in Marx's theory, understanding that there is, implicitly, a powerful analysis of the geographical space in the last two chapters of the first volume of Capital. There appears a tension between “capitalist production” and capitalism that, in our opinion, is settled only by the consideration of the spatial closure operated, in general, by the borders of the States. To observe this we make a brief tour through the history of the Mediterranean in the XIV to XVI centuries, and we put it in correspondence with Marx's analysis of the English colonies. Based on this premise, we inquired about its implication in the expansion of the nation-state form, and the functionality that it has had in different stages of capitalism, including a reflection on its current function.
