Abstract

On the west side of the Gennargentu massif between Nuorese and Ogliastra in the Barbagia di Belvì area. Rich in chestnut groves, it is characterised by tower-like carbonaceous formations. At hone time, quicklime was obtained from the white rock that emerged from the sea in the Tertiary period. The Su Textile heel at Aritzo is one of the highest. Others can be seen along the kilometres of narrow roads bordered by woods of holm-oak and downy oak. In the springtime at Su Toni 'e Girgini in Desulo, the blossom of thousands of cherry trees form a garland around the tower. Managed by the Forestry Commission, the cherry trees plantations at Girgini are in a vast area that was used only for grazing until 1980.
