Sardinia Language & Culture
The first language of Sardinia is Italian, although the Sardinian language, Sardo, is still widely spoken. A remarkably rich language, Sardo varies greatly from area to area, even from village to village, with Latin, Arabic, Spanish and Catalan influences reflecting the turbulence of the island's past.
Sardinians are friendly and polite with a strong sense of tradition and a passion for their island. This is reflected in their many festivals and events that take place throughout the year. Sardinians love to indulge in good food which is not surprising when you sample their delicious produce. Families play an important part in society and it is not uncommon to see groups of family and friends gathering for an enormous feast on Sunday.
Life in Sardinia is unpretentious and simple compared to that of other countries. Many islanders are still employed in the agricultural industry and you may notice that there are few or no extremes of wealth. That said, Sardinia is a warm and welcoming island, rich in tradition that will dazzle you with its beauty and leave you wanting more.
