This comprehensive monograph is easy to consult and can be a perfect guide to visit the Zisa palace, which is one of the seven monuments of the Arab-Norman Palermo, together with the Cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale, recognized as UNESCO property.

The Zisa, designed and built to be a place of royal delight and pleasures, modified various times both in form and purpose, passed from hand to hand, partly fell down and abandoned to the devastating work of men and time, was finally brought back to its original incomparable splendour.

Despite the alterations, it is still possible to notice in its forms that cultural Koiné that tied Sicily to the Muslim civilization, in particular to the North-African one, during one of the highest moment of the Mediterranean culture.

Giuseppe Bellafiore. He was Professor of History of Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture in Palermo and then Ordinary Professor of Art History at the Faculty of Humanities and Director of the homonymous Institute. For more than 40 years he has been the President of the Association Italia Nostra

He wrote several volumes in which he reconsidered, sometimes radically, the Sicilian history of art.
