In 1799 the Savoys took refuge on the island after losing their other territories to Napoleon. In 1847, in Cagliari and Sassari, huge crowds persuaded the Savoys to link the kingdom of Sardinia with Piedmont in “fusione perfetta”. In 1861 both became part of the Kingdom of Italy. The Harbour at Cagliari The port was developed after the arrival of the Savoy rulers.
WHERE TO SEE SPANISH SARDINIA The first Spanish building in Sardinia was the GothicAragonese chapel in the cathedral in Cagliari (see p55), followed by San Francesco in Iglesias, San Giorgio in Perfugas, and San Francesco and the cathedral in Alghero (see p118). The cathedral in Sassari was built in the style known as “Colonial Baroque”. Baroque influence is also evident in Àles cathedral. A notable school of retablo painting developed.
