Sunday 6th August the long awaited conference “Shardana and Sardinia” took place at the Club Five Dock RSL in Five Dock (Sydney). Guests Sardinian archaeologist Fabio Serchisu and FILEF honorary president Carlo Lai – who came to Australia specifically to hold a series of conferences across Brisbane and Sydney.
In the presence of a multicultural audience of about 100 people, the archaeologist spoke about the ancient population of Sardinia, starting from the prehistoric age to the so-called “nuragic” era.
During the conference, the Italian book “Shardana e Sardegna” written by Italian archaeologist Professor Giovanni Ugas was presented, compiling the findings of 40 years of research into the ancient people living by the Mediterranean sea, who are likely well connected with the nuragic population.
At the end of the event, a copy of the book was donated to our Association by our Sardinian guests.
A buffet was then offered to all the attendees and our guests, also including Sardinian sweets, home made by the restless and kind ladies of our Association.
