The project explores the disparate theories and contradictions around the Nuragic civilization’s historiography. This prehistoric Sardinian population existed between 2.300 BC 200 AD and played a central role in shaping the contemporary identity of the Italian island. The lack of indisputable information about them and the abundance of unresolved hypotheses made room for several myths to emerge, often real traps in the historical narrative which paved the way to bizarre and absurd theories. It is precisely within this mysteriousness and heterogeneity of Sardinian historiography that my project is taking shape. Nuragic bronzes, megalithic architectures, building sites, information panels without information and unidentified museum objects are some of the protagonists of this story.
