Thank you for your answer.
However, in my data it does not happen that one dimension (e.g. city) is within the other dimension (e.g., province).
Rather, I have (say) 100 independent firms; when I consider all  of their possible relations and diplay them in a square matrix I have 100x100 = 1000 observation (1000 dyads).

   A   B   C   D   E
A      1   0   1   1 
B  1       1   1   1
C  0   1       0   0
D  0   1   0       1 
E  1   1   0   1  

All dyads in a row (e.g., for row starting with firm A, the dyads: AB; AC; AD; AE)are correlated because all have the same firm A in each dyad; at the same time, all dyads in a column (e.g., for column starting with firm B, the dyads: AB; CB; DB; EB)are correlated, because you have the same firm B in all of these column dyads.
Hence, I have to correct simultaneously for row and column.
Note, that it occurs that you may have the same dyad in different columns ad rows; for instance, in the example above, the dyad AB is present in both the row and column.
How should I cluster?

note: the same thing occurs if I do not display the dyads in a square matrix, but in a triangular configuration.

If you mean to cluster by distinct combinations of three variables,
e.g. if var1 is country and var2 is province code within country and
var3 is city code, and you think errors are correlated within city,
egen c=group(var1 var2 var3)
and cluster on c.
