  • Palazzo dei Normanni   Il Palazzo Reale o dei Normanni di Palermo was constructed on the highest part of the city, above a Punic installation discovered in 1984 (located in the section under the Sala Duca di Montalto). During the Arab domination, the first nucleus was built between the rivers Kemonia and Papireto with characteristics which were typically defensive and which is the reason of its name “Qasr”, a word which in Arabic indicates more than a castle, but also a fortress for military assignments. With the arrival of the Normans to Palermo in 1072, the reconstruction and amplification of the city began, work which allowed the transformation from fortress to Palazzo Reale and nevralgic center of complicated events that, in 1130, following the crowning of Ruggero II di Altavilla (the first Norman King of Sicily) conducted to the construction of the marvellous Cappella Palatina. Four towers characterized the main nucleus of the Palazzo dei Normanni , inside of which there could be a workshop and a textile laboratory (tiraz); to which the courts, first of Ruggero II and later of Guglielmo I (il Malo ) and of Guglielmo II (il Bono ), succeeded on the miracle of joining cultures deeply different.
  • Federico II di Svevia, heir of  Enrico VI Hohenstaufen and Costanza di Altavilla, continued the political point of view of his grandfather Ruggero II,  even if it happened when he was very young, he organized the administrative  activities, as well as the cultural aspects with the meetings of the Scuola Poetica Siciliana. After a period of forgetfulness, characterized during the Angevin and Aragonese domination, the Palazzo Reale was relaunched  from the politics of the Spanish viceroys in the second period of the XVI century, and therefore were constituted new architectonic elements with military and representative typology, consistent with the new organizational needs (among which the two main courtyards, della Fontana del 1584 e Maqueda del 1600). The Bourbons period gave a cue for the completement of the “Palazzo” and in particular to the new decorations in the Sala d'Ercole, today home of the Assemblea Regionale Siciliana.

    2. 3. The history of the palace goes back to the 9th century during the time of Arab rule, but probably goes back even further. The Arabs built the palace on an older Roman and Punic fortress. Over time it was abandoned by the Arabs, and the conquering Normans restored it into a sumptuous residence. During the reign of Frederick II, the Palace enjoyed a period of splendor, and became the center of cultural life in the city, as the headquarters of the “Sicilian School”. The palace houses the spectacular Cappella Palatina inside, which was also built by the Normans. The Normans came and went, and by the mid-16th century the palace was in serious decay until discovered anew by Spanish viceroys, who in 1555 began its rescue and once again turned it into a royal residence. Today it is the seat of Sicily's semi-autonomous regional government Palatul Normanzilor (Palazzo dei Normanni) - a fost ridicat î n secolul IX de conduc ă torii arabi dar probabil sarazinii au construit pe locul unei fort ăreţe romane sau cartagineze mai vechi. Abandonat de arabi a fost restaurat de normanzi care l-au transformat într-o reşedinţă cu adevărat fastuoasă, adăugând şi Capela Palatină. După plecarea normanzilor palatul decade, însă pe la 1555 viceregii spanioli îl readuc la splendoarea de odinioară transformându-l din nou în reşedinţă regală. Din 1946, palatul a găzduit Adunarea Regională Siciliană, care pretinde a fi cel mai vechi Parlament al Europei.

    9. 21. The Arabs, a people who knew the joy of a green oasis, were the ones who introduced gardens into Palermo. The Normans extended the idea by creating parklands and summer palaces to escape the heat. Behind the Palazzo dei Normanni lies Villa Bonanno, among the most beautiful public gardens of Palermo. Villa Bonanno adjoins Piazza del Parlamento, with its mammoth statue of Philip V of the House of Bourbon. Gr ădinile au fost înfiinţate la Palermo de către arabi, popor care ştia să aprecieze răcoarea oazelor. Normanzii au extins ideea înfiinţând parcuri şi reşedinţe de vară pentru a scăpa de căldură. În spatele Palatului Normanzilor se află Grădina Bonanno, una dintre cele mai frumoase grădini publice din Palermo. Parcul se învecinează cu Piaţa Parlamentului unde se ridică statuia cu adevărat monumentală a lui Filip al V-lea de Burbon
