Autunno in Barbagia
In 1996 The City Council of Oliena organized an event called ‘Cortes apertas’ or ‘Open courts’: The historic homes of the town open their backyards to a gastronomic and artistic journey. Straight away the idea and its set up seemed to be pretty successful. The project ‘Heart of Sardinia’ was created in 1997 and one of its activities is the ‘Cortes apertas’, which continues to be successful in different towns. In 2001, some city councils and the Chamber of Commerce decided to start a joint project, which would allow the opportunity for other towns to join the group. This is how the Autunno in Barbagia name was born, a promotional window to showcase Sardinia hinterland, careful keeper of the knowledge and tastes of undisputed value, aiming to promote the excellent products and tangible and intangible traditions, of the people living there. In this window become an opportunity for experiential buying: seeing how cheese is produced, tasting it and then buying it. It's something everyone really likes. The Chamber of Commerce and its Azienda Speciale have always taken care of the coordination and management of the group, which brings together 27 to 28 towns each year, while the organisation of each event is run by the City Council Administrator.
