Una Città sull’acqua
The City of Cagliari has a relationship with water that is renewed and reaffirmed periodically. The very first signs of life in its territory appear in the area of Sant’Elia and Marina Piccola. Still, it is near Santa Gilla that the first settlement of the city arose, born as a trading post of the Phoenicians. The city developed until it climbed the hill of the Castello district, but it still sought contact with the sea through the Marina district. Gradually it reached San’Elia, the beach of Poetto and the pond of Molentargius again.
