It is positioned west of the Italian Peninsula and to the instantaneous south of the French island of Corsica. Sardinia is politically a vicinity of Italy, whose respectable name is Regione Autonoma della Sardegna Regione AutOnoma de Sardigna, and enjoys some degree of home autonomy granted with the aid of a specific Statute. It is split into 4 provinces and a metropolitan city, with Cagliari being the region's capital and its biggest city as well.
Sardinia's indigenous language and the opposite minority languages spoken at the island are identified by means of the nearby law and experience "identical dignity" with Italian. Due to the kind of its ecosystems, which encompass mountains, woods, plains, largely uninhabited territories, streams, rocky coasts and lengthy sandy beaches, the island has been described metaphorically as a micro-continent. In the modern-day technology, many vacationers and writers have exalted its splendor, remained untouched until the contemporary age and immersed in a panorama that homes the vestiges of the Nuragic civilization.
