Festival "Garda Estate"

Il Festival si svolge nella parte sud-occidentale della Sardegna, e nell’isola di San Antioco, dove il mare e il territorio, fermi nel tempo, non sono ancora stati sfiorati dal progresso e dal turismo. In questa parte dell’isola, oltre a godere della celebre bellezza del mare più famoso del Mediterraneo, è possibile godere di un clima assolutamente confortevole 365 giorni all’anno.

L’interno di questa parte della Sardegna presenta un territorio sconfinato e selvaggio, adatto a escursioni di ogni genere, dalla semplice passeggiata pomeridiana fino a impegnativi percorsi di trekking di più giorni, o alla scoperta della cultura, delle tradizioni e dell’arte della Sardegna. Numerosissimi e pittoreschi villaggi sono facilmente raggiungibili come sono raggiungibili i tanti misteriosi nuraghi.

Infinite le possibilità di escursioni alla scoperta del paesaggio, delle tradizioni e della cultura di questa bellissima isola, caratterizzata da una cucina dai sapori legati al mare e ai prodotti della terra che, essendo stata per secoli assolutamente isolata, ha conservato sapori e profumi introvabili nel Mediterraneo.

Great success for the Festival Internazionale Corale al Sole della Sardegna (edition 2016)
Festival Internazionale al Sole della Sardegna has just concluded successfully with great satisfaction of all the 38 participating choirs. The choirs performed 15 concerts in as many townships of Sulcis (South Sardinia), getting to know the famous hospitality of the Sardinian people: the choirs felt welcomed by the warm embrace of the cities where the concerts have been held; such welcoming has been shown by the accurate setting of each concert, by their appropriate advertising and, at the end of the concert, by the always generous organisation of a moment of conviviality which allowed the invited choirs to savour tastes and smells of the gorgeous Sardinia once again. The foreign choirs appreciated in particular the rich and absolutely original repertory presented by the local choirs, discovering the peculiarities of expression, techniques (unknown in other areas) and instruments (such as launeddas and diatonic accordions). During their stay the choirs had the opportunity to visit the magnificent territory of Sulcis, full of history, cities of art, awe-inspiring nature and mines. Thanks and congratulations to all participating choirs! The success of the Festival is due of their brilliance and confirm our enthusiasm and desire to continue..… hoping that the bonds of friendship created during the concerts will bring future choral collaborations and exchanges.

Great success for the 2nd edition of the international choir festival "Al Sole della Sardegna" Sunday, August 30, ended the second edition of the festival, three foreign choirs and 14 Sardinian choirs performed in 7 concerts in different places of the Sulcis. The event was greatly appreciated, both by all choirs and the audience that was very numerous at all concerts. The concerts took place in churches of Iglesias, Carbonia, Calasetta, Tratalias and S'Antioco, but also in the impressive former fish market hall of Portoscuso and in the beautiful cave of S. Giovanni in Domusnovas, in which it has been organized for the first time a concert in the cave. The course is already clear: for the next year, some foreign choirs have already registered, and certainly there will be again a numerous participation in Sardinian choirs, who brought with their repertoire a fresh and sympathetic touch and appreciated choral values at every concert. Next meeting therefore at the next edition in 2016! Giuliano Rinaldi
