Responsible and Sustainable Tourism We have analyzed the evolution of the concept of tourism from ancient times until today, and we choose to investigate the responsible tourism; this kind of tourism protects not only the territory, but also local population and encourage human relationships.
Responsible tourism enables that: the profits remain in the host territory and are distributed within the community. human relationships between tourists and locals are established.
Our work We imagined to work in a tourist travel agency, at our school, and we organized an advertising leaflet with the services offered and a “chain” (zunchillos) of cultural information. We have also prepared a video in which are compared responsible and irresponsible tourists’ behaviors.
Zunchillu It is an ornamental chain made of gold and silver rings, typical of the women's traditional costume. In the agency brochure, the chain rings are the different proposals suggested according to the demand of tourists.

Sardinian people are: Some scholars think that the first inhabitants of Sardinia, who settled in Gallura (NE) have come from Etruria, who inhabited the central area of Oristano came from the Iberian peninsula, and those who settled in the area of Cagliari (South) came from Africa. According to other scholars the ancient Sardinian language has ties both with the indo-European language with both sardiana similar to that of the Etruscans. These populations, different, eventually acquired a certain homogeneity in language and customs, changed forever by contact with people coming from outside (the Phoenician – Punic, Roman, Vandal). The inhabitants of the interior, still retain the primitive character closed, tenacious, yet simple, sincere, hospitable. To win the friendship of a Sardinian takes years, but if you succeed you will be friends for life. The Sardinian population It describes the cultural and linguistic origin s of Sardinian people. The inhabitants of the inner part of the island still preserve their primitive character, tenacious yet simple, sincere and welcoming.
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean: it has an area of 24,090 Kmq. It is only 11 Km far from Corsica. 80% of the territory is mountainous or hilly, while the largest plain is the Campidano. The mountains are very old and molded by erosion and the highest peaks are Mt. Gennargentu (over 1800 m) and Mt. Limbara (1362 m). The plateaus are of granite or basalt (Giara di Gesturi), or sandstone or limestone (Tacco di Perda Liana). 10% of the territory is occupied by carsic formations, caves, dolines and underground lakes, both in coastal areas, (Cala Gonone, Alghero) and inland areas (Oliena Dorgali, Fluminimaggiore Domusnovas, Ulassai,). The granite rock formations eroded by weathering have created striking sculptures (in shape of elephant bears, mushroom, ”sa conca” head- haped). The rivers have torrential features: the main ones are, Flumendosa, Coghinas, Tirso, are blocked by dams to form reservoirs; Lake Baratz, nearby Alghero, is the only natural one. The shores are mostly high and rocky, like Capo Caccia cliffs (Alghero) interspersed with sandy coves. Low and sandy coasts are in Cagliari (Poetto) and in Sassari (Platamona). There are coastlines with sand dunes in Porto Ferro (Alghero), Chia (Cagliari) and Piscinas in the territory of Arbus (SW Sardinia), which is considered one of the few European deserts. In the southeastern coast are the Rias, of fluvial origin. Ponds and lagoons are found alongthe west coast from Alghero, Oristano to Cagliari. The climate is typically Mediterranean, along the coastal areas, winters are mild and summers hot and dry; inland in areas, the climate is continental with extreme temperatures, in summer and winter. The rainfalls, variable are modest and irregular, in the south and more frequent along the western coasts. Snow is common above 500/600 meters. The region is very whole windy: Mistral dominates and in summer it mitigates the climate; Sirocco a warm wind carries red sand from the African desert. ZUNCHILLU BRAU Geography
Sardinia is one of the oldest land in Europe, inhabited since Palaeolithic but inhabited stably from Neolithic (6.000 B.C.). It was occupied by Phoenicians (1800 B.C.), Carthaginians (509 B.C.), Romans,(227 B.C.), Vandals (V century), Byzantines (534), Arabs (in 52 and in 1015), Pisans (XII century), Aragonese and Spanish (1300 to 1700), Piedmontese 81820). However there are periods of genuine autonomy, when, between 9 th and 15 th century they established four Giusdicati, configured as proper states, with their official languages, emblems and laws (Carta de Logu), whose most important decisions were taken by the people’s representatives assembled in parliament (Corona de Logu). In 1948, Sardinia obtained administrative autonomy to protect the language and its territory.

In Nurra (NW) is also the palmetto and Centaurea orrida The sandy beaches, up to the depth of 50 meters, host the Posidonia oceanica, an endemic species in the Mediterranean, a natural bio indicator of coastal water quality, important for coastal protection and an ideal habitat for the resettlement of marine environment.

ZUNCHILLU DE PRATA Crafts and productions
The architecture of Sardinia spans a broad period from prehistory to the present day. The most representative are the Nuraghi, over 7.000 scattered throughout the island. These are flanked by buildings dating back to Phoenician –Punic and Roman times (roadshouses, bridges, aqueducts, temples). Other structure like churches, castles, coastal towers, reflect in their architecture the influence of later invaders such as Byzantines. Arabs, Spaniards, Pisan. Typical house of the Sardinian culture are Campidanese, house in Campidano (Sud), “stazzi” in Gallura (NE) and “cuile “ in Nurra (NW). Most of them have been restored and turned to tourism. The Campidanese “furriadroxu” is the house of the farmer, structured for the housework and for the agricultural works. It usually has an inner courtyard with plants and citrus trees, with balconies and overlooking window of the room positioned on two floors.. The “stazzo” in Gallura has only one floor, with room located around the main one, used to work. The “cuile” in Nurra is very simple, with only two room, one to work and the other devoted to the rest of the shepherd. The most typical of all is the shepherd’s shelter, “sa pinnetta”, a round shaped dry stone base with the upper conical part made of. reed or branches ZUNCHILLU ARRUBIU Ancient architecture and farming
