I'm confused, is also used orange peel? and does the cutting of this should be in the direction of the pulp?

I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Sicilian Blood Orange Marmalade" from dymnyno. It says:

"Slice them very thinly and turn and slice the other direction so that you mince the oranges."

Yes, dice the whole orange into small pieces and that is what you make the marmalade with. The soaking removes all/most of the bitterness from the peel and the result is a great marmalade....with a little sugar.

Yes, she wants you to use the orange peel. She says that after the soaking there is no bitterness from the peel.

I'm not 100% sure if this is what you're asking but the 4th step is just asking you to dice the oranges up into small pieces.
