Il mito normanno nella cultura artistica della sicilia degli Asburgo: costruzione identitaria e rappresentazione del potere

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

During the 19th century Sicilian architecture saw a return to a neo-Norman style, with that glorious moment in the island’s history offering legitimation for the calls for autonomous rule that envisaged the recovery of the kingdom of Sicily, freedom from the Bourbonic yoke and an end to the subordination to Naples. However, a similar phenomenon had already occurred during the 16th century. Sicilian Renaissance drew inspiration not only from classicism, but also from the legacy of its Norman Middleage, perhaps as an attempt to build an identity for an island, like Hapsburgs’ Sicily, not free and a melting pot of cultures. But the Norman mith shows a surpriding contradiction: on one hand it lent support to the construction of a “national” Sicilian identity, on the other it became a powerful tool for the Spanish Crown to strenghten its monarchical power and its control on the island.
