Tempio Pausania

With a history dating back more than 4,000 years, in the north of Sardinia lies the town of Tempio Pausania called 'the city of stone' for its renowned granite production.

In the centre of the town, architect Renzo Piano designed the Piazza Faber named after the singer De Andrè. Flags of various colours and sizes flutter over it, pointing in all directions, recalling the universality of the artist's poetic message.

It is also home to the island's most important folk carnival, Lu Carrasciali Timpiesu, which attracts 100,000 visitors every year. 

In addition, the town's history and the nature around it, with nuraghi and forests, have made it one of the borghi più belli d’Italia (the most beautiful villages in Italy).
