HIDDEN SECRETS
10 ITINERARIES AROUND THE ISLANDS
Barely visible from the sea, the small carefully camouflaged fortifications on the La Maddalena Archipelago seem to melt into the surrounding granite, the self-same rock used to build them between 1800 and the early 1900s. Many are authentic architectural masterpieces, hewn to sculptural effect from the rock and perfectly at one with the tortured landscape of the islands...

THE CHURCH OF SAN LORENZO
BETWEEN SACRED AND PROFANE
The Church of San Lorenzo in Portorotondo is one of the most memorable examples of modern religious architecture. This tiny gem is the work of three great artists: Andrea Cascella, Mario Ceroli and Gianfranco Fini. The magnificent cross outside the church is made of two granite slabs intersecting on a circular base, sculpted by the ever skilful local masons. The interior welcomes believers and non-believers alike...

ART OF TRAVEL
ADVENTURE BEFORE PHOTOGRAPHY

PORTOROTUNDITY
A NOBLE CHARACTERISTIC 
OF THE SOUL
The easy-going attitude with which a true Portorotundite faces life, itís pleasures and adversities, even those adversities that are more or less obviously inherent in every pleasure (donít you agree?) are handled with a healthy but considered dose of lightheartedness. Considered, but carefree.

Mrs PODBIELSKY
AND THE COAST'S FIRST SETTLERS

Summer 1961. One day we drove along the "road" towards a bay known as Liscia di Vacca. At a certain point we emerged at the top of a rise and a landscape opened before us, a calm, beautiful bay nestled into the gentle roll of the land which went down to meet it.

LIFE THIS MAN LEADS
This man - who amongst the Sardinian hills not far from the sea plants, cultivates, gathers and dries aromatic essences - makes me think: I want to live like that. I enrich the land I cultivate, there is nothing in my work that sullies or diminishes the world, I sell every part, down to the last leaves and I do not expand my business beyond the limits of my capabilities: I do business but at a logical size...
