Salude & Trigu

The Chamber of Commerce of Sassari, which includes the territories of the two provinces of North Sardinia, namely Sassari and Olbia-Tempio, in 2019 gave birth to the program "Salude & Trigu" for the tourist enhancement of cultural events and traditions of North Sardinia.

Salude e Trigu, in Italian "health and wheat", is an ancient Sardinian wish of well-being. The program was created with the aim of promoting events and traditions of the territory of North Sardinia, but also places and people. Salude e Trigu also wants to be a place of exchange of knowledge and experiences. 

From 2019 it creates new job opportunities and development for tourism businesses in North Sardinia, thanks also to the growing demand of the international tourist market interested in an authentic, cultural and experiential territorial offer.
