Salude & Trigu is the programme created by the Sassari Chamber of Commerce to promote all the most charming events in northern Sardinia.

Sardinia is a land of disarming beauty where the fantasy of nature blends with a thousand-year-old history and ancient magic that you can feel in the air.

If you visit this island, you will feel that in the masks on display in the shops, in the jewellery and the sound of the traditional instruments, a soul has come down to us from distant times. You cannot experience Sardinia without experiencing its traditions and festivals, listening to its songs and tasting its food. You can't live Sardinia without knowing its stories and hearing the sound of the footsteps of the figures parading through the streets. There is no Sardinia without its events that bring the past to life and speak of the present.

The Sassari Chamber of Commerce knows this well. So it created the Salude & Trigu project to promote the most important and fascinating events in northern Sardinia. In this way, visitors to the island can get to know a magic land that knows how to be loved.

What is Salude & Trigu

events of Sardinia: typical costume

Salude & Trigu is a review of the most charming events in northern Sardinia, namely those taking place in the provinces of Sassari and Olbia-Tempio.

The calendar for 2022 includes 50 events in the period from spring to the grape harvest, divided into four themes: "food & wine", "culture & music", "nature", and "tradition".

Here you will find yourself immersed in the culture and folklore of the villages and towns of the island's north. There where the past has never completely passed, and the present adds its energy to an already enormous heritage.

Wonders of northern Sardinia

The coast and its scents

Northern Sardinia: bear rock

The cadenced sound of the waves breaking on the rocks greets the new day as it dawns. Meanwhile, strangely shaped rocks project their silhouette onto the surrounding land from the top of some hill. There is an enormous stone bear that guards the town of Palau in Gallura and used to strike fear into the hearts of sailors. But this is not the only creature born of the patience of Sardinian nature.

Here, the Mistral wind, together with the force of the sea, has shaped cliffs, dunes and trees. And so it is easy to find oneself staring at some maritime pine, wondering why it has such a bizarre shape.

The scent of mastic, helichrysum and myrtle mingle with the smell of salt, the protagonists of a nature that has almost entirely preserved its wild beauty.

The coast of northern Sardinia is a spectacle that is never the same, part of an island considered a micro-continent because of the variety of its ecosystems. Jagged coastlines hiding coves with impalpable sand give way to long sandy shores. As fine as talcum powder, white sand alternates with a coarser, rougher grain as red as granite.

The interior of the island, villages and towns

Northern Sardinia: Mount Limbara

The island's interior is undulating mainly, made up of a few flat stretches and different heights, such as the imposing rocks of Mount Limbara and the soft lines of the Romangia hills. Silent and austere, thousands of years old truncated cone-shaped buildings suddenly emerge from the earth, guardians of a unique culture in the world.

Towns and villages spring up here and there in nature that there is still the master of the land. There are villages where time seems to pass more slowly than elsewhere, where people live without haste, and more sparkling and modern towns. And here are the two faces of the same island, living side by side: one more hidden and authentic, the other more touristy and worldly.

The people and their traditions

folk events of Sardinia

And then there are the Sardinians. Profoundly and irrevocably in love with their land. A people who live their traditions with enormous respect and who, especially in certain parts of the island, still believe in magic. They are proud and hospitable people, very attached to the family, for whom food is a ritual, and festivals are so important that they still respect ancient practices.

From dawn to dusk, Sardinia has nothing "already seen" and nothing "taken for granted" in its sounds and silences, landscape, and everything that cannot be seen. Salude & Trigu may be the best story-teller you can find because it was created by someone who deeply knows his land and knows how to tell it.
