ArcheoLive. The excavations of Baldu live. Guided tour of the archaeological excavation of Baldu's Palace in the company of archaeologists.
A tempting opportunity for all archeology enthusiasts to discover a unique medieval site in Sardinia and be updated directly by the scientific director of the excavations, prof. Fabio Pinna, and from the team of the School of Archeology and Community of the University of Cagliari.
On the site of Santu Stévanu, in the countryside of Luogosanto, a restoration of the remains of a building known as Palazzo di Baldu has turned into a consolidated archaeological project. The investigations, resumed in 2013, after the first interventions from 1999 to 2002 brought to light a building complex composed of sixteen rooms that delimit a large courtyard, inside which is the building known as Lu Palazzu (preserved for about ten meters of height), one of the rare examples of civil architecture of medieval Sardinia. The examination of the finds is providing valuable information on the relationships maintained by the inhabitants of the complex, at least for the chronological period between the XIII and XV centuries, which acquire a particular importance in light of the lack of documents that attest to the history of the Giudicato di Gallura . With the progress of the investigations, the site appears to be one of the seats of power in the Sardinian Middle Ages.
Fabio Pinna is a researcher in Christian and medieval archeology at the University of Cagliari and director of the School of Archeology and Community, which for several years has been carrying out excavation, research and dissemination activities at the Baldu Palace in Luogosanto.
The research project in the Palazzo di Baldu represents today a small model that combines archaeological research and university teaching with a path of appropriation of the cultural heritage by the local community.
The team of the University of Cagliari has committed itself over time to sharing the results of the work with citizens and visitors, even during the work site phases.
University students who participate in the activities, therefore, also practice communicating the results of research to the public and planning actions to indicate the effects of archaeological research on sustainable development of the territories.
Starting from 2018 a School of Archeology and Community was established, which supports research activities and is characterized by an exchange of knowledge between archeology scholars and the different expressions of the local community.
The laboratory is wanted and organized by the Municipal Tourist Office and the Municipal Library, with the collaboration of the "Puffolandia" Ludoteca and the financing of the Municipality of Luogosanto and of the Department of Tourism of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia. Participation is free. For further information: [email protected], Facebook: @LuogosantoTouristOffice, +39.079.60.18.959
