The contribution analyzes the restoration project of the "norman gardens" in Palermo, examining the criteria and the results that have occurred from the end of the nineteenth century to today. These architectures created a constructive unicum with their gardens, identified by historiography as the "Arab-Norman" architecture of Sicily. It is interesting to note that since 2015, UNESCO has recognized "Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale" as a World Heritage Site, identifying not the individual Norman monuments, but the itinerary that connects architecture and outdoor spaces. The objective of the contribution lies in the comparison between past and present and in the analysis of the transformations that have affected this socio-economic context and the landscape in the last two hundred years.
