Live in Sardinia in Autumn means … Autumn in Barbagia 2014
On September 5, 2014 kicks off the fourteenth edition of Autumn in Barbagia, an initiative designed and promoted by the Chamber of Commerce of Nuoro and the special company Aspen.
Familiar theme of the event is to strengthen the identity of Sardinia during a period unconventional as the autumn.
The visit of the 28 countries that open their cortes weekends, allows visitors to immerse themselves in the heart of inland Sardinia, to discover aromas, flavors and traditions, arts and crafts that are jealously guarded for centuries by countries Barbagia and that annually attract thousands of visitors, Sardinian, from the rest of Italy and abroad.
Savin Couëlle: His idea of Sardinia
The Costa Smeralda in Sardinia takes its name from the emerald waters off scalloped shores encrusted with granite outcroppings. An annual summer pilgrimage for sybaritic yachtsmen who anchored here in paradisiacal seclusion, the coast was fabled for its natural beauty. But when the current Aga Khan discovered it decades ago from a boat, buildings were few and architecture next to nil. Lacking water and fertile soil, it was underpopulated, underdeveloped and—except for ancient stone lookout towers—lacked a rich architectural tradition. The issue of a landscape without a strong indigenous architecture was a sensitive, even crucial, matter for the region’s future: Too much of the Mediterranean had already been overbuilt with structures insensitive to nature.
