The ancient Nuragic civilization, an extraordinary brand of Sardinian identity, has been included in the Unesco “tentative list”. It is the first step for his right to enter the heritage of humanity to be recognized. This was announced with satisfaction by the president of “Sardinia towards Unesco”, Pierpaolo Vargiu, thanking the work done by the Scientific Committee coordinated by professors Ugas, Zucca and Depalmas and acknowledging the “extraordinary and unified mobilization of mayors, advice from all municipalities of Sardinia, Council, Regional Council and Presidency, Sardinian Universities, schools, economics and associations that have supported with passion and enthusiasm a challenge that can really radically change the future of Sardinia “.
“Of course – admits Vargiu – the ‘list of attempts’ is only the first, very important step of the complex path that must lead our Island to Paris and there is full awareness that, to reach the goal, still a long way and a lot of work awaits us, but today we can really rejoice for a result that rewards the shared commitment that has united all Sardinians, from cities to small towns, from Sassari to Cagliari, finally all united in the name of a great common perspective ».
“The challenge – he concludes – is now to raise the bar even more: the Nuragic civilization must be recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, but above all it must become the driving force behind the identity brand of our Island and must to guide our great bet for a new sustainable development project, based on our roots and our peculiarities ».
