What to expect when you take a vacation in Sardinia? So starts our series of photo essays, this one in the Barbagia region in Nuoro province during Autunno in Barbagia, a fall festival celebrating everything born of the hardscrabble life in the Sardinian mountains, the spiritual center of the island.
There will be music
There will be drums and waiting
There will be Sardinian Knives, hand made of course.
There will be pasta shapes you've probably never seen
There will be masks and there will be meat
There will be proud old men
There will be women making bread in dark rooms
And oh, what bread they will make!
And there will be another generation, too.
