In the 8th of Paradiso, Dante fixes the image of the revolution that broke out in 1282, when the people of Palermo rose up against the Angevins, who had been detested since 1266 when Charles of Anjou had desecrated the body of Manfred of Swabia, son of Frederick II, Emperor of Germany and King of Sicily. A splendid capital under the Normans, Palermo in the 13th century was a city whose political transformations were linked to profound changes in the urban fabric. The establishment of a number of powerful families became visible with the construction of splendid palaces: the Steri dei Chiaromonte and Palazzo Sclafani, among others. During the 14th century, the city and the royal power intervened several times in the restoration of two significant elements of the city's identity, the walls and the Cathedral.
