Visit eleven rooms dedicated to the history of basketmaking in Castlsardo. The basketwork of the town of Castelsardo is still considered an ancient skill, not written down but documented and handed down to the new generations by the villagers who inhabit the medieval town. Visit MOG (Museo delle origini Genovesi) museum dedicated to the genoan origins of Castelsardo.

Visit: Museo dell'Intreccio Mediterraneo, Via Marconi, Castelsardo, Sardinia Italy

You will visit the museum of Mediterranean Weaving and the Genoa origins of the town of Castelsardo, which also gives a panoramic view from the fortess.

Along the streets of the town one can still come across basketmakers who are both historical and modern figures, sitting in front of their houses weaving with dwarf palm, marine hay or raffia, almost as if they need to communicate this tradition to tourists as well as to their own fellow citizens, Their artifacts, on display for the tourists and passersby, recall the techniques, forms and decorations of the ancient basketworking tradition of Castelsardo but also reflect the personal tastes and innovative talent of the contemporary local craftsmen.

In Sardinia, the varying distribution of the weft fiber on the warp determines the distinction between two different compositional techniques: coiling and twining. To these we can add the techniques used for roofing and mats; for sacred occasions or ceremonies, like the Easter palms; for the caning of the typical Sardinian kitchen chairs; for articles used in daily work activities depending on the type of work involved; fishing creels or breadbaskets.

The history of Castelsardo originates under the medieval name of Castelgenovese, the fortress belonging to the Ligurian family, the Doria. Its story is linked to a myth belied by historical fact: its founding, for centuries dated at 1102, because of an erroneous interpretation of medieval data by the historian and humanist Giovanni Francesco Fara from Sassari (1543-1591). The exact year is difficult to establish because a foundation charter of the fortress does not exist, it was first mentioned in 1272 in a letter sent by Carlo D’Angiò, King of Sicily to the municipality of Genoa asking that justice be rendered to Guglielmo di Saint-Gilles, a citizen of Palermo, who had been imprisoned in the fortress.

The Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju is one of the most important archaeological sites in Sardinia since it has one of the largest and oldest complex of artificial caves, used by different cultures from 4200 to 1800 BC. about. Discovered casually in 1903 and explored in subsequent excavation campaigns until 1967, the necropolis includes 38 domus de janas located near a stream, the Rio Filibertu. The rock, limestone sandstone, facilitated the excavation of the tombs, by means of rudimentary lithic picks, but limited its regular development especially in height. These tombs are of two types:
• in the cockpit (older) with irregular floor plans;
• corridors (more recent) normally arranged in T or in a radial pattern.

The architecture of the tombs is often enriched with details inspired by the houses of the living (steps, pillars, frames, false architraves, false doors, false windows, etc.), taurine horns, engravings and reliefs in the larger rooms, probably funeral ceremonies.

The findings found have returned archaeological materials of the Culture of Ozieri (4200 - 3400 BC) that attest to the first moments of use; subsequently many sepulchers were reused along the entire arch of the Eneolithic (3600 - 2100 BC). The domus de janas, sealed outside with lithic manhole covers, revealed collective burials of individuals placed above all in the supine position; however, there are no secondary depositions (remains of skeletal skeletons), examples of bodies in a fetal or ruined position and rare cases of semi-cremation.

The dead were buried with useful and expensive objects in life, ornaments in stone and shell, vases, lithic or bronze weapons and female idols. In addition, remains were found that testify to the use of funeral meals inside the cells and at the entrances.

In a bay the Romans called the Harbour of the Nymphs, in the extreme northwestern part of Sardinia, there is a village almost four thousand years old, shrouded in legend, among the most important that the Nuragic civilisation left us. The architecture of their construction testifies to the extraordinary skills of the fascinating and mysterious Nuragic civilisation. The Palmavera complex is located on the promontory of the same name, one and a half kilometre from the sea, within the 

Porto Conte Park, in the province of 

Alghero. Built with blocks of limestone and sand, consisting of a central body with two towers and a bulwark, plus the huts of a village: today there are less than 50, but experts estimate that number to have ranged between 150 and 200 when the village was inhabited.

The nuragic complex of Palmavera is composed of blocks of limestone and sandstone and consists of a central body with two towers, a rampart and a village of about fifty huts. The village was built during three phases and the oldest structures date back to the 15th century BC.

The part of the village that is visible today is only a quarter of its entirety at the time of the Bronze Age, in fact the original huts of the village are about two hundred. Among the most interesting elements of this site, we must first name the meeting hut, which is the largest of the whole complex with a political-religious role. Inside there is a model of nuraghe and a unicum of the Nuragic civilization, or the cylindrical seat-throne in sandstone.

The main nucleus of the site corresponds to the two nuragic towers (main tower and secondary tower) enclosed by a partly collapsed bastion made of sandstone. The secondary tower has given its turn over time, unlike the Tower A, the main one, which is well preserved and can be visited in its fantastic and striking interior.

The end of the village dates back to the 8th century BC, when a violent fire probably ended the life of this place. However, attendance during the III and II BC centuries is attested.
