Sardinia is an island rich in history and "stories" that have left their indelible mark on the landscape, creating a layering of evidence at the same time complex and affascinante.Il sea, while it has led to the development of cultures unique aspects absolutely well-recognizable, the other has allowed fruitful contacts with civilizations and Mediterranean nations over time, from prehistory to the modern age.

    All this is deposited in the island, giving origin to a landscape rich and unique. Only some aspects of this long history are known, even to the same Sardi, because the undeniable flamboyance of some monuments, such as the nuraghi, together with the overlap of life in the same places, tend to cover certain periods of history and monuments, which are of no less importance and interest. This cultural wealth must become a living thing, not remain a dead letter, or be considered a rest embalmed of a remote past.

    The life of the Cultural Heritage comes from its in-depth knowledge, its integration in the "landscape" in which he was immersed, by its connection with similar events; Finally, the "stories" which tells and that is the task of scholars and social leaders of the community to bring to the knowledge of all. If some monuments and certain areas are easily accessible form, others, however, are more difficult to access, and often the distance of each other type can make a direct visit.

    But we are fortunate to be able to take advantage of new technologies that enable virtual operations phenomenal outreach and educational activities, which are not absolutely pure visibility, but who at the base, and can not be otherwise, a series of in-depth studies that collect all data sites. So these are processed, the monuments are immersed in their environment, compared with similar situations better preserved, and finally the inevitable gaps are filled so likely following scientific criteria, reassembling the situation in its original aspect, and thus returning at the same time the life of the site and the site at vita.

    Seguendo a virtual guide can penetrate the secrets of the construction of the prehistoric tombs and nuragic, visit large housing complexes and sacred nuragic age, enter the underground tombs Punic and discover how the early Christians have turned into catacombs and walk in Roman cities and see them change and transform over time before our eyes. We enter, with the wonder of a villager of the time, in richly decorated monasteries; we admire the amount of medieval castles that dominate the landscape from the hills, and we feel protected from the incursions of the Saracens from the system of coastal watch towers.

    There is also a dive even in the modern age, in the world of work, the mining industry, which no longer exists but that was a strength of the Sardinian and that left indelible marks in the landscape of south-west Sardinia. A virtual journey then, but no less charming and engaging, that must be the impetus to go to review sites and search for live many more, similar but always with particular aspects and different.
