Sardegna is a beautiful and magical island full of history and traditions. Dating back many centuries they are still alive and enchanting visitors today through the colors and patterns of tapestry, the ingenious wickerwork, the complexity of local costumes, the magical rituals of local festivities, and the very peculiar food recipes.

At Eccelsa Aviation you may now take with you a small souvenir of this millenarian heritage.

SALTY If your preference goes toward salty food then you will love the organic green olives from Sardegna, the small brine cherry tomatoes and artichokes, the variety of salsiccia secca - local dry beef sausage that you may usually find sliced and served with goat cheese as starter in local agriturismo - and tasty pecorino goat cheese as well as ricotta salata cheese.

SWEET If the sweet side of life is your favourite one then you have to try local sweets such as tilicas - filled with a delicious honey & almond paste - soft papassini, artsy bianchetti, honey-covered acciuleddi, and best-seller amaretti - with their light bitter almond aftertaste.

WINES Just as costumes, dialects, and food change from town to town in Sardegna - so that you may never get tired when touring the island - so do wines change. Get to know the east coast and Alghero by tasting its delicious Sella & Mosca, the south of the island with its well-balanced Argiolas - who also produce award winning Turriga - or the heart of Sardegna with its strong Jerzu's Cannonau.

ART Choosing a Sardinian tapestry is like choosing a modern painting - their colors and patterns are very subject-appealing, and you may find liking a certain one and not consciously knowing why. Ceramic handwork, on the other side, are much "easier" as they usually recall the blue, azure, and turquois colours of the sea and either abstract geometries or forms from the animal and plant world.

Whether for you senses or for your soul, you may probably find a small something reminding you of your stay in Sardegna worth taking home with you.
