Abstract: An unresolved and intriguing problem about active galactic nuclei is the mechanism responsible for nuclear triggering and fueling. Until now there is not a unique solution that can completely explain this phenomenon. We present preliminary results about morphological and photometric analysis of a sample of 35 nearby (z < 0.035) and isolated Seyfert galaxies, observed through broad-band BV R filters at the 1.8-m Vatican Telescope and the 2.2-m ESOLa Silla Telescope. We analyzed photometric and morphological parameters and, using GALFIT software, we obtained two-dimensional decomposition of the luminosity profiles.
