Preface by Ferdinando Maurici

From the ninth to the twelfth century Sicily was the seat of an artistic culture which highly expressed itself in the designing of gardens and parks.

The art of landscaping arrived in Sicily from Mesopotamia, through the Magrib. Nature, fauna, water and architecture competed to create perfect refuges for contemplation, peace, music and poetic practice.

Parks were mainly destined for hunting.

The Favara, the Zisa, the Cuba of Palermo have a very important architectonic value. Through them it is possible to reconstruct the ways of living and the housing habits of the higher classes of the Islamic and Norman societies.

The book thoroughly describes this artistic patrimony and unveils its value with critical point of views and accurate remarks.
