Sardegna Local Customs

  • Traditional Sardinian Dress

    See if you can catch any of the traditional Sardinian dance that may be happening in a town near by.

  • Closing Time

    If you come from a fast food nation or where stores are open 24hrs then you'll be in for shock when you arrive here. In MY town everything is open at 8:30am and closes at 1pm. To reopen again at 5pm and close at 8pm. On wednesday night everything is closed except the butcher. Forget about sundays, nothing is open. I believe that every town has...

  • Regional Food

    Italian food is very regional so although you can find pizza and spaghetti and capuccino everywhere, other things may different a lot from one region to the other.

It is a large round crisp bread, which is very similar to a poppadum. It is perhaps slightly more 'wheaty' and crispy than the india...

  • A way of being

    Old traditions and old principle are still alive in Sardinia. For example, a strong respect and devotion is still hold to old people. Every town has is own traditional dress and it is still common that children wear it the day of the "patrono"(the protector saint ) of their town.

    DRESSES Every country has its traditional dress, in some countries it is much richest than in others countries, but this depended on the wealth of the country and for the presence of noble families in this country (sorry the repeat word :-))

    LAUNEDDAS This instrument has ancient origins and works like a Scottish cornamuse but being without bag, a particular type of respiration must be used (to inspirare from the nose using the mouth like bag) incredible isn't??!!
