Example text

After the Revolution of 1789, France made vain attempts to conquer Sardinia, but, by 1795, the island was overwhelmed by revolutionary fervour of its own and a “Sardinian revolution” broke out in Cagliari. 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. There are 15thand 16th-century paintings in the Art Gallery in Cagliari.

In the uplands to the east are the ruins of Sardinia’s largest prehistoric site, Su Nuraxi, chosen for its vantage point over the surrounding plains. The islands of San Pietro and Sant’Antioco are separate from the mainland culturally as well as geographically: the towns of Calasetta and Carloforte are inhabited by the descendants of Ligurian coral fishermen who were held hostage in North Africa by Muslim pirates and, once freed, were offered a home on the islands.
