Abstract: We present the results on an XMM-Newton systematic analysis of a sample ofnine Seyfert 1 galaxies. When observed in polarised light, the spectra of theselected sources are similar to those of Seyfert 2 galaxies. This peculiaritystrongly suggests that these AGN are viewed with an inclination comparable withthe torus opening angle. Our results are consistent with this scenario and,taking advantage of this favourable geometrical condition, we were able toinvestigate in detail the physical properties and the distribution of thecircumnuclear gas in these sources.
