Thirty years of Tavolara Film Festival
10th July 2020
The Tavolara Film Festival from 13 to 19 July 2020 is preparing to celebrate the 30th edition with a “special” formula, which takes into account the health emergency but does not give up celebrating, in a spaced and contained form, the beauty of the island which houses the most beautiful cinema arena in the world.
The festival born in 1991 has always maintained the same prerogatives: a lot of Italian cinema and the desire to affirm that even an invaluable environmental asset like the island of Tavolara could be enjoyed with intelligent proposals that perfectly combined landscape protection and tourism .
Among this year’s guests Jasmine Trinca, best leading actress at the David di Donatello, Neri Marcorè, Geppi Cucciari and many others.

After the great success of last year, also this year the arrival of the warm season will be greeted with a special day full of history, the skill of our ancestors, the popular and religious beliefs that permeated everyday life and that, still , resist.

BUDELLI: the most shining jewel of Maddalena
18th April 2020
When we return to see these wonders they will seem even more beautiful. Even from afar Budelli shows itself in all its beauty with sensational colors, famous for its turquoise waters and for the Rosa beach, among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.
Always privately owned, Budelli passed definitively to the national park in May 2016. Today, protected by landscape and environmental constraints, it can be admired as an authentic masterpiece of nature at a distance, accompanied by park guides, without anchoring, or doing the bathroom, much less stepping on the beach. Although remote, the island exudes all its charm. From its ‘top’ Monte Budello (87 meters) the view is breathtaking: granite cliffs and thick vegetation hide coves of fine sand and blue sea, including the Cavaliere beach to the north-east.
To reach Budelli it is necessary to turn to guided tours and to boat rental centers that start from the Costa Smeralda, La Maddalena, Palau and Santa Teresa Gallura.

DORGALI: the 70 km long cave
9th December 2019
The cave is located on the eastern coast of Sardinia, near Dorgali and is part of the system of coastal caves typical of the area, born thanks to the karst phenomenon that unites the underground caves. The cave measures exactly seventy-six kilometers, and is the longest underground route in Italy; joins Su Palu, Monte Logos, Molente and Bue Marino.
The discovery of this incredible cave in Sardinia occurred in 2016 when three speleosubs traveled the entire route along long and demanding aerial and diving sections.
After a walk of about 60 meters you arrive in front of a small and suggestive lake, very deep from where a submerged tunnel begins. This Sardinian primacy snatched the title from the Tacchi-Zelbio-Stoppani cave complex in the province of Como, which remains in second place with a length of 58 km. In third place is the Corchia cave in Tuscany.
