AUTUNNO IN BARBAGIA DORGALI
16/17/18 settembre 2016
Fachende zoigas is an ancient saying that refers to
the careful and complex manufacturing process of the
traditional Dorgali jewels, alluding to those skills that
have always distinguished the craftsmen from this village:
precision, care and attention to the smallest details.
Dorgali rises on the slopes of a mountain rich in woods,
overlooking the valleys cultivated with vineyards and olive
trees confining with the rugged landscapes of Supramonte.
On the northern slope of the mountain, the town of Cala
Gonone overlooks on the East side the Gulf of Orosei.
It is a renowned touristic locality and at the same time
a place tied to the ancient traditions, arts, creativity
Knowledge and imagination meet together in the
workshops of craftsmen specialized in different
manufacturing processes such as filigree, pottery, carpets,
leather, knives and wood and they find an elegant dwelling
in the windows of the small shops along the village main
streets. During the event of Autunno in Barbagia, routes
and guided tours between history and village legends
are foreseen, as well as more than 50 courtyards of craft
masters and some wine and food specialties to find out
and taste the authentic tradition of Dorgali.
