[Autom. eng. transl.] The Borges work is characterized by being a very intricate literary "labyrinth": the innumerable intertextual relations used by the Argentine writer for the realization of his literary creation signal many, unusual and suggestive paths. The goal that we want to try to achieve with this work is to try to understand how the intertextual element that leads to the path of Arab-Islamic culture has emerged within the writing of Borges. The text consists of three chapters: the first is dedicated, in part, to briefly reconstruct the history of the Arab presence in the territory of the Iberian Peninsula and, in part, to give an overview of how Spanish and Spanish-American literature have been influenced by the Arab-Islamic theme during their evolution. The second chapter includes an analysis of the oriental theme in Borges's work, in particular some priority topics on which the Argentine writer seems to have focused most heavily on his work have been highlighted. The last chapter is devoted to the study of how the theme of Al-Andalus appeared in the Borgesian literary elaboration, in particular, the attention turned to the famous Alephian tale of La busca de Averroes.
