ITALIAN REGIONS

SARDINIA Sardinia
Sardinia Sardinia is a large island, the second in the Mediterranean Sea after
Sicily. Is about 180 km from the coast of the peninsula, and only 11 km from Corsica. Between Sardinia and Corsica, the Strait of Bonifacio. His training is very old, much earlier than that of Italy: some soils were formed about 500 million years ago.
Most of the land is hilly and mountainous. In the central part of the island is the most important mountain system, Gennargentu, including the 1834 m Punta La Marmora, the highest of Sardinia; Gennargentu north and the chains of Marghine Goceano and diagonally across the Ala Mountains, further north still stands the massive granite Limbara (1,359 m). In the south-west there is the main inland plains of Sardinia, the Campidano once swampy, now fully reclaimed. Lower plains are located in northern (Nura) and along the coast, near the mouths of rivers.
The rivers have torrential character of Sardinia, with busy periods during the rainy season and droughts in summer. One river plain, the Flumini Mannu (which means "big river", from Latin flumen magnum), while others run largely built in narrow valleys between mountains. Key among these (Coghinas, Tirso and Flumendosa) are blocked by dams. More than 40 artificial lakes to Sardinia ensure the water supply and electricity. The most notable of these is Lake Omodeo, fueled by Tirso. There are no natural lakes, and coastal ponds are frequent.
The coasts have very different characters: sometimes low and swampy, sometimes high and rocky, are poor in natural ports, although in some areas are very rugged, as in Gallura, in the northwestern part of the region. Here the sea, occupying the ancient valleys, form deep inlets called rias. Also in this section, as well as in Sulcis opposite end of Sardinia, the sea is dotted with islands and islets, often joined to the coast from the sandy isthmus.
The climate, the Mediterranean, is characterized by long hot dry season: the poor rains are concentrated in late autumn and early spring. The winds, especially the northwest, coming from the north-west, flying on the island throughout the year and especially during winter months.
The fauna of Sardinia has many peculiarities. Some species of animals, such as the mouflon, originate on the island, other species, widespread in the mainland, but missing entirely in Sardinia: for example, the viper and all the poisonous snakes, the sparrow, the mole, the wolf. This is due to the fact that Sardinia has a very old and has never been united to the mainland.
