It is the first monograph by Giuseppe Bellafiore, published for the first time in 1956 and later translated into German and English. Today it is still available for sale in its new edition. Known for its easily identifiable red cover it has guided tourists as well as Palermitans around the city, becoming a referential text. The guide is divided into 22 itineraries, leading the reader from the heart of Palermo to its surroundings, Bagheria and Monreale. It includes ink drawings replacing the usual photographic material.

The updated Italian and English editions, also available in e-book, are edited by Architect Susanna Bellafiore.

 

Giuseppe Bellafiore. Historian, art critic, academic, journalist and essayist.  He was professor of History of Architecture at the University of Palermo and then professor of Art History and Director of the homonymous Institute. For more than 40 years he has been President of the Association Italia Nostra.

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

The monographs on “La Zisa di Palermo” and “The Cathedral of Palermo” particularly show his in-depth studies of the Islamic and Norman periods.
