The study aims to shed light on some aspects related to the life of the archdiocese of Palermo at the end of the fifteenth century by analyzing the movable assets listed in an unpublished source that is fully transcribed. It is an inventory compiled by the notary Giacomo Randisi in December 1476, after the death of Archbishop Paolo Visconti, to avoid that the movable assets could be taken away from the Church of Palermo or from the city. Thanks to the objects existing in the city palace and in the Scibene, the inventory allows us to focus on the social, economic and cultural context of the archdiocese and to throw new light on a monument, the Scibene, of which today there are only few remains.
