You will cross the plain of Campidano, nineteenth-century granary of Italy, among the remains of the ancient volcanoes emerged on the edges of the homonymous Pliocene Rift Valley (Corsica-Sardinia Rift). Reached the slopes of the volcanic massif of Arcuentu, you will cling along the road, used since 1850 by miners, donkeys and trains, that made the Industrial and Social Revolution which led Montevecchio Mine to the attention of the great European colonial elite. Places that saw cyclopean inventions, that brought men hundreds of meters below sea level. Places where the class struggle began, with the first strikes in the world, immortalized in black and white films of Charlie Chaplin. Awarded by the European Community as a Tourist Destination of Excellence (Eden2011), among barren valleys and dense forests, it will reveal ancient shafts, mining trucks, rich houses and workers' houses. The panoramic return to Cagliari, from the mountainous area of Arbus to the foot of Monte Linas (highest peak in south-central Sardinia), will take you through cork trees, olive and citrus groves, traditional Sardinian tree crops. You will arrive at your destination, after a great ring itinerary in an authentic and famous, but also unknown Sardinia.
