ESPLORANDO IL MEDIOEVO: HENRY GALLY KNIGHT E LA SICILIA

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

This essay is dedicated to the figure of Henry Gally Knight, a well-known british expert of medieval architecture, who decided to reach Sicily in 1836 to complete his Norman architecture investigations, together with the architect George Moore. During his stay in the island, besides visiting more traditional landmarks of classical antiquity, Gally Knight’s specific interests will lead him not only to study prestigious architectural complexes like Monreale and Cefalù, but also to trace the medieval vestiges even of the island’s inner parts, such as Randazzo, Maniace, Troina. Gally Knight’s tour and the esulting volumes he published – The Normans in Sicily: being a Sequel to “An architectural tour in Normandy”, London 1838, and Saracenic and Norman Remains, to illustrate the Normans in Sicily, London 1840 – showed up the charms of Norman civilization to scholars and travelers, and provided as well a basis for the studies on southern Middle ages and for the discussions about Gothic architecture during the following years.
