“All the buildings part of the ‘Arabic Norman site in Palermo and the cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale’ represent a material example of coexistence , interaction and exchange among cultures of historical and geographical heterogenous origin .
This syncretism generated an architectural and artistic original style, considered of an exceptional universal value , a style that sees Byzantine , Islamic and Latin elements admirably fused and able each time to create rare combinations of an outstanding artistic value and example of full integration.
The Arabic-Norman syncretism had a great impact in the middle ages , and it significantly contributed to the creation of a Mediterranean koinè , that was the fundamental condition that brought to the development of the modern Mediterranean-European civilization”.
(Candidacy dossier for the application to the World Heritage List of the serial site Arabic–Norman Palermo and the cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale, December 2014)
