Medieval Sardinia: the Acquafredda Castle and the San Giovanni cave

In a fertile plain, among wheat fields, farms and streams that irrigate vegetable gardens, a volcanic relief of hard rock suddenly shoots up to the sky. At the top, an old castle still clings on. A simple path uphill slowly leads us to discover the ruins of a village, the ancient cisterns for water collection and the remains of a church. Finally, the castle appears before us, and from there we admire a landscape that glows with different colours every month of the year. Conclude this experience at the top of the castle with a glass of wine and tasty products of the Sardinian tradition. After touching the sky with your finger, we will feel as if floating between stillness and silence when we reach a very long cave down below, to admire huge stalactites, stone patterns created by water. For almost a kilometre, we will cross this natural wonder with excitement and amazement, before emerging from the exit at the bottom in the middle of dark green woodlands of centuries-old oak trees.

The wilde horses of the Giara and the nuraghe of Barumini

We explore the pristine volcanic plateau of the Giara to meet the reknowned wild horses. We also discover Su nuraxi, the important prehistoric monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Giara is a vast uncontaminated basalt plateau where thousands of wild horses have lived for thousands of years, though it remains a mystery how they came to inhabit this natural landscape of outstanding beauty. We approach them through the cork oak trees and the myrtle-scented shrubs, to see them while they drink calmly in the small ponds. Below them, on the plain, we spot in the distance the monumental nuraghe of Barumini. This typical Sardinian prehistoric structure was built with stones carved out from the Giara itself. The nuraghe is made up of a system of towers, part of an old genial idea the memory of which has sadly been lost.Today we can witness an amazing prehistoric monument built by people who knew how to govern with balance over the external forces.

This peasant village offers a show of images, colours, creativity and surprising works such as the resonant stones made by the late artist Pinuccio Sciola.As soon as we enter the town of San Sperate, we can immediately understand why this is unlike any other place. On the facades of its houses, we can admire hundreds of lively murals, modern art installations and contemporary artistic experiments that blend with the old coloured wooden doors or go undetected between the cracks of walls made of traditional mud and straw bricks. San Sperate is where art is shared and is the heritage of all, a place to have a unique sensory experience. Immersed in a fragrant orange grove, we will hear the harmonic sounds made by the hundreds of basalt and limestone monoliths that were sculpted by Pinuccio Sciola, a local artist.

Cagliari: Porto Flavia

The Masua hub was a complex of several mining operations in the Sulcis area, a region of Sardinia rich in coal, sulphur, barium, zinc, lead, silver and other metals. Extraction began in 1600, but became economically relevant only in the early 1900s when the mining business in the whole region experienced a quick expansion. The extraction, especially of the coal caves, was operated on a low-technology basis until the early 20th century. Since the late 1800s metal-gathering enjoyed more modern techniques, as it was controlled mostly by rich north-European corporations more willing to commit money in improving the mining efficiency. In 1922, the Masua mines were acquired by the Belgian Vieille Montagne Company, and exploitation increased with the growing need for zinc and lead for reconstruction after World War I as well as because of technological advance in steel alloys.

The hidden villages of Armungia and Villasalto

Deep in the mountains, we find two small towns, part of a living museum where, at its centre, for thousands of years, has stood a prehistoric tower, the nuraghe of Armungia. This town has grown around it, stone by stone, and to visit it feels like going back in time, to relive ancient crafts and new emotions.The scent of the myrtle leads us along a path trailed by miners and peasants, before arriving at the fields and the old mine of Villasalto, the neighbouring town where each family still owns a vineyard and raises goats without a hitch. Some one thousand inhabitants live here, surrounded by mountains where mouflons, foxes and wildcats still roam.We visit places where the past and the present barely meet because time does not seem to ever pass. We open the wooden doors of old houses into flowered courtyards, to find old cellars and kitchens inside, and to sit at the table with men and women who have been waiting to meet us and share food with us.
