The Nuraghe Diana is located on the hill Is Mortorius, 35 m. above sea level and a short distance from the latter. Its location evidently responding to policy needs, and the need for precision to control the means of penetration from the sea inland. This dolmen is one of the best preserved in the territory quartese and, paradoxically, has this to the fact that it was converted during the Second World War to be using the shell as a fort. The results of this intervention, rather invasive, are still clearly visible today, in particular on the top of the central tower, where it was made a concrete cover equipped with openings to allow firing. The central tower is still preserved in its entirety, as opposed to what happened in the cases of several nuraghis the area, such as those of Niu Crobu and Commands, whose blocks were reused to build modern buildings, respectively, a tank and a pizzeria. The area of the dolmen Diana has recently been affected by a campaign of archaeological excavation and recovery of the site.

L'Arrubiu (arrubiu = rosso, il colore del basalto) e' uno dei nuraghi piu' importanti ed imponenti dell'isola. E' l'unico pentalobato fino a oggi conosciuto. E' costruito alla base con grossi blocchi di basalto sui quali poggiano filari regolari di massi piu' piccoli rincalzati con zeppe e abbondante malta di fango. E' costituito da un mastio circondato da un bastione di 5 torri e da un antemurale di 7 torri, forse in origine piu' ampio, che delimita all'interno 3 cortili. Il mastio, in origine a due piani e terrazzo conserva la tholos inferiore e parte della camera del primo piano , nonche' un piccolo vano cupolato con accesso dall'esterno che aveva la funzione di alleggerire la massa muraria. La camera inferiore e' accessibile attraverso un ingresso volto a S e un andito piattabandato. Presenta la tholos integra e tre nicchie irregolari disposte a croce. Ha restituito un grande focolare e, interrato al centro, un vaso globulare con delle microfratture forse destinate alla dispersione di liquidi a scopo rituale. Privo di scala d'andito, il mastio era raggiungibile ai livelli superiori dagli spalti del bastione attraverso una scala elicoidale ricavata nello spessore della cortina, quasi sull'andito d'ingresso del bastione. L'andito immette nel cortile centrale, poligonale, con banchina lungo il lato destro, cisterna e annesso sistema di canalizzazione. Sui blocchi a coltello del basamento poggiano architravi che creano cinque ripiani. Davanti alle feritoie e' una zona lastricata delimitata da lastre a coltello. L'antemurale raccorda 7 torri e racchiude 3 cortili. A questi si accedeva attraverso ingressi architravati e retrostanti anditi, e con scale intramurarie collegate con la sommita' delle cortine e delle terrazze delle torri della cinta. Le cortine presentano nicchie, un bancone e numerose feritoie in parte occluse in antico. Nel cortile Y si trovano un vano a goccia che racchiude un alto silos, e una capanna semicircolare con focolare centrale. Del villaggio che si estendeva attorno all'antemurale sono state scavate 3 capanne: tra queste una probabile capanna delle riunioni dotata di bancone. I dati di scavo, pur parziali, portano a datare l'insediamento tra le fasi finali del Bronzo medio e il Bronzo finale. All'inizio dell'eta' del Ferro la vita si interruppe bruscamente. Una piccola tomba di giganti con camera a filari si trova a circa 800 m a N-O del complesso

SARDEGNA


A journey sailing on an emerald sea among small and big coves with snow-white sand and this is Sardinia, an Island that strikes its visitors with natural contrasts, the lights and colours of a region that guards old traditions, amid wilderness and pure nature. Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia is a mainly mountainous region, without high peaks, with a vast and charming, yet bittersweet, natural environment. In fact, the presence of man does not seem to affect this territory; great surfaces still preserve their natural composition, luxuriant woods with even millenary trees, small desert areas and marshes inhabited by deer, wild horses and rapacious birds. The sea reigns over this region with its colours and it creeps into the coves, along the coasts, the beaches and the most popular resorts. An example is the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) with its pearl, Porto Cervo, that combines the history and culture of a region that has old traditions with a joyful and colourful nightlife. Porto Cervo was named after its enchanting cove, which looks like the antlers of a deer; the Old Port is considered the best-equipped tourist port in the Mediterranean Sea. Porto Rotondo is also a famous location; it overlooks the wide Gulf of Cugnana and is full of villas and piazzas embedded in a splendid natural environment. Those who prefer the mountain to the sea can explore the area of Gennargentu, the greatest mountain range in Sardinia, with its peculiar landscape, where Man and Nature joined one another and decided that the latter should have the priority. This region is rich in flora and fauna, with its mouflons, golden eagles, Sardinian deer and several species that are now threatened with extinction. Among its wonders, Sardinia offers the visitor the Nuragic complexes scattered all over the territory. These are unique monuments in the world that testify an ancient culture, that remains partly mysterious, and that went from the fifteenth century to the sixteenth BC. The Nuragic constructions were built using great blocks of stone and develop around a central cone-shaped tower that transmits strength and power. These are archaeological sites where it is possible to grasp the archaic charm of ancient rituals and domestic life. Of these many constructions, the complex of Barumini, in the province of Cagliari, is among the sites in the UNESCO World Heritage list. The provinces of the region are: Cagliari (regional capital), Carbonia-Iglesias, Nuoro, Olbia-Tempio, Oristano, Medio Campidano, Sassari and Ogliastra.
