 Oristano and hinterland
Oristano was founded in the XI century by the inhabitants of the ancient town of Tharros, which was the most important Sardinian centre of the Punic civilisation.

Following a hypothetical oenogastronomic itinerary through the province of Oristano starting from the Sinis peninsula, we pass by typical vineyards and wine-shops producing Vernaccia di Oristano.
The Oristano hinterland also boasts delicate white wines, although less prestigious than Vernaccia: from the older Nuragus to the more recent Vermentino del Campidano from Marrubiu-Terralba, Sangiovese and Nieddera, moving then to the hills around Mogoro where we find Semidano, Moscato and red Bovale.
Typical dishes from the Oristano area are extremely varied and range from fish from Cabras (giltheads, bass, eels) in many different forms to merca: mullet boiled in salt water and wrapped in marsh leaves (zibba).

This is a new subject, and it remains to be seen from both content and results if it is appropriate to talk about a “new tourism” without distorting the value which the new disciplines of Bioenergy and Archaeoastronomy certainly have.

 Sardinia
In Pittau's opinion, Sardian was an IE language and Caralis is related to Greek kholos 'bile', which is from the IE root *g'hel- 'to shine, green, gold, blue'.
But for what seems to be the phonetic features of the Sardian language, it is more likely a derivation from the IE root *ger- 'to gather, put together'.
The Sardinian scholar Pittau believes that the name mentioned by Ptolemy should be corrected in *Sarrapos, from the survival of the name Sarrabus, an historical sub-region, and from the existence of a town at its mouth called probably Sarrapos.
