A place were the hard work underground, into the coal and silver mines or on the sea, in the tuna fishing boats, show an extraordinary strength and pathos. Many international Masters of architecture, art, photography (Eduardo Souto de Moura, Hans Kollhoff, Jannis Kounellis, Mimmo Jodice among them) taught how to preserve wildlife and history suggesting a way to sustainable economic development.

mogoro lab

Mogoro is a small center in the countryside of Sardinia, well known for its handmade wool carpets, which show coloured and rich decoration. This workshop has been organized by the Architecture Department, University of Cagliari, focusing on landscape and typical architecture. The two capital letters M and L were combined to form a star/flower pattern, wich is one of the strongest symbol of the local textile tradition.
