Leggendo for the Environment

Leggendo Metropolitano reconfirm for the tenth edition the cooperation with Legambiente.

During the past years, we promoted itineraries which intent was to discover the natural heritage of Cagliari, with the aim to promote a growing awareness of the territory.

Children, young and adults were involved in the itineraries. The interest toward their own city has been growing in parallel with the need of become an active member of the community, giving a basic contribution recorded by the substantial number of subscriptions.

This year, our partnership will take on a new wider format, always following its objectives: promotion of the cultural heritage discovery, encouragement of the team building and incentive of an increasingly green perspective.

The programs are

three urban paths, with free participation and open to everyone, virtual and not, marked to better deepen, from a landscaping and archaeological perspective, the histories of the families of the past, their bonds and their houses. Many revelations among artifacts, villas, Punic and Roman tombs, that will highlight the daily gestures and the familiar weaves, the affections and the pains of a society not so far from modern society.
