An interview with La Nuova Sardegna by Silvana Porcu

This past March I was contacted by Silvana Porcu, an English-speaking Sardinian journalist from La Nuova Sardegna. She and her editors were looking for an article on Sardinia, but from an outsiders point of view. Silvana found My Sardinian Life and she contacted me. We did the interview via Skype, she in Alghero and I in my adopted home town in Sardinia.

I would like to thank Silvana for taking the time out to interview me on My Sardinian Life. And another huge thanks to La Nuova Sardegna for printing the article. This was a huge honour for me, thank you.

What joy and exposure! I’ve already been contacted by a woman who lives in Sardinia and she is Canadian! Imagine! I thought I was the only Canadian on the island. I’m looking forward to meeting these newfound friends.

    I will heading to Orosei from July 9 – 16. What do you recommend I do in Orosei (restaurants, beaches, hikes etc..) and what other sites can I drive to?

    • Hello, unfortunately I don’t have any experience in nor around Orosei. Upon my return it will be one of the first areas I head to. Please stop back in after your holiday and offer me some tips. Enjoy your time in Sardinia and be sure to try the seadas and mirto.

    Esperta? in uno dei suoi blog, ha menzionato i 10 più importanti eventi in Sardegna, e si è dimenticata dell’unico evento che è può fregiarsi del riconoscimento dell’UNESCO nell’isola, ovvero i CANDELIERI…. ma ha menzionato la sagra delle ciliegie!! Vi sembra proprio che questa blogger possa svelare qualche segreto a qualcuno!! Dai su, diamoci una svegliata, e non facciamoci incantare come sempre dai forestieri… Vediamo di metterci una pezza, e proviamo a raccontarla noi sardi la nostra Sardegna.

    • Ma quanti sei gentile con le parole. Invece di andare a trovare quello blog post e fare un commento sul il guisto blog to viene qui a parlare. Prima di dare consglio a qualcuno e meglio che lasci la bocca chuiso o meglio indagare … https://mysardinianlife.com/2012/08/16/the-descent-of-the-candle-bearers-i-candelieri-2012/

      Roberto ci sono tanti sardi che raccontano la Sardegna, ma ciò non esclude che possa farlo anche uno straniero. Anzi, ben venga chiunque che come Jennifer, innamorata della nostra isola, ne racconti anche gli aspetti meno conosciuti.
      In ogni caso, qualunque sia la tua opinione, sarebbe perlomeno auspicabile che seguissi un po’ più la netiquette e usassi modi meno aggressivi nei commenti ai post altrui
