The reports of the visits of the bishops Bartolomeo Castelli (1695-1730) and Girolamo Palermo (1759-1765) in addition to the usual accounting notes of historical information about the founding of congregations and the construction of churches and convents, thus becoming a good source of documentation for historiography; Moreover, in the case of the city of Trapani, the two volumes also contain the planimetric representations of many of the buildings visited, nearly all written by famous local architects. This is a unique case that does not seem to be reflected in other Sicilian cities and dioceses,
