Antonino Salinas, a well-known Sicilian archaeologist, was also a protagonist in the history of the restoration of monuments, and in particular of "Arab-Norman" architecture.
He held various positions, including that of Director of the National Museum of Palermo and of Superintendent. The essay traces, through the analysis of his writings, the stages of his contribution to the restoration of monuments in Sicily between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
