Brief history of Cagliari.
Cagliari, a coastal city and people of sun and seagulls: this is what you find strolling through the climbs and descents, in a sunny morning and breathing in the scent of salt air. In its people we can see the history, a mirror of its culture and the island. Set on seven hills, limestone, and stretches along the Gulf of the Angels and then developed, especially in recent decades towards Campidano, bordering countries and neighbouring cities as Quartu Sant’Elena Selargius, Monserrato and Quartucciu. The city's landscape, inextricably linked to the sea which has drawn its main wealth, has never changed radically over the course of centuries, though today we know a reality made up of new urban districts and suburban areas. Cagliari, Sardinia's cities, you know the new axis along the median or the road from January 28, 2002 replaces the old Poetto Avenue, crossing the pond Molentargius before arriving in Quartu.
Born in the Neolithic age, rises to the role of cities during the period of Phoenician domination, rising to the rank of major crossroads of trade routes for its convenient location at the heart of the Mediterranean. The inhabited areas stretching from Cape Saint Elias, which was a small village Salinieri and fishermen, to the richest settlements in the pond of Santa Gilla and the surrounding area of Saint ‘Avendrace. Stood near the necropolis of Tuvixeddu, entirely carved into the limestone, and they were numerous findings, mainly pottery, now preserved in the Archaeological Museum at the Citadel Museum. At the centre of the two poles, today Via Roma, was situated the port and a thriving market where you developed a village of fishermen and merchants, who traced the area in which arose the Naval District, formerly known as La Pula. From Roman rule. From 238 BC, the year of the Punic War, the city came under Roman domination, becoming the fulcrum of irradiation of Latin culture in Sardinia. The Navy, as is testified by the remains found in the excavations of Santa Eulalia, continued to be the most vital area, which took place in trade of great importance for the socio-economic development of Sardinia. Cagliari, a real Roman city, contained a complex of luxury houses such as the Villa Tigellio and had independent living and active, as evidenced by the large amphitheatre, dated between the first and second century. Which still houses the Summer Season, sponsored by the Foundation of the Opera, and other cultural and entertainment summer Cagliari.
With the advent of Christianity, the city has been confirmed as the new gateway to the Gospel, released by the African bishops. It is attested in Cagliari the presence of great personalities such as St. Augustine, of which the remains were preserved in the church in Largo Carlo Felice, recently restored. After decades of domination Vandal and various vicissitudes, the city became part of the Byzantine Empire, which gave autonomy to the island, allowing the establishment of local judges, the ninth-tenth century AD The seat of power moved to Judicial Saint ‘Igia in pond area of Santa Gilla, because the coast were less safe for the forfeiture of the fortifications in the neighbourhood of the Navy and frequent Muslim raids.
With the decline of Cagliari Judged from around 1250, Pisa was able to establish its dominance over the city, capturing the castle headland and shaping the administrative and judicial framework based on the Tuscan town. Castle was completely surrounded by walls, isolating it from the rest of the city and became the seat of government offices and residence of citizens of Pisa. Following were surrounded by walls the other historic neighbourhoods: Marina, Stampace and Villanova. Boniface VIII created the conditions for the end of the domination of Pisa with the Deed of feoffment of 1287, which gave the Kingdom of Sardinia and Corsica to James II, King of Aragon. The Aragonise conquest started from 1323, when the Spaniards put their stronghold on the hill of Bonaria. Although Pisani had strengthened the fortifications of the castle walls with the construction of the towers of San Pancrazio (or Aquila), today visited the elephant and lion, incorporated in the palace of Pylo Boyl Putifigari now belongs to the family Tomassini Barbarossa. The Aragonese won in 1326 by winning the battle of Sanluri. During the Catalan-Aragonese domination, Cagliari continued to have a certain autonomy which allowed the formation of crowded. Cagliari also is built up a Jewish community near the Bastion of Santa Croce, which results in the name of the Jewish Ghetto, where today that produce, interesting cultural events. With the unification of the two crowns, Castilian and Aragonese, we entered a more authoritarian Spanish government, leaving less room for local autonomy and creating discontent in the population. The situation in Sardinia, Cagliari and therefore remained almost unchanged until the wars of Spanish Succession ended with the Treaty of Utrecht of 1717.
BY Savoy TODAY. After a short period of Austrian domination, Sardinia was ceded to Savoy, by the Treaty of London of 1718. Vittorio Amedeo II of Savoy became King of Sardinia, taking a land crystallized from centuries of Spanish domination. During the domination Piedmont urban works were implemented that affected the intervention of military architects; Cagliari was regarded as a fortified city. It still gave ample space to architectural civilian was expanded and renovated Holy Cross College Royal Palace, there was a new project for Bonaria hill and were renovated and made active the Saline.
After the unification of Italy, Cagliari was finally removed from the list of fortified cities, and this allowed, with two master plans drawn up by Gaetano Cima, warp to adapt to the needs of urban development that went beyond the ancient city walls of historic districts. Law of 1881, was dismantled the ancient walls of the 'Marina' and 'Villanova' and 'Stampace', and designed the new Town Hall, begun in 1899 in front of Porto in limestone, following the Art Nouveau, neo- Gothic.
In 1886 they built the Market Town of Largo Carlo Felice, demolished in 1957, the centre of which stands the Statue of Carlo Felice. Via Roma was transformed into a living room with sea view for the construction of porches and beautiful buildings, frequented by people of Cagliari to find refreshment in the evening. Even was born the bastion of Saint Remy, who with his blanket and the rampart walk was long a meeting place for the company town. Before the War the city was also home to a very active cultural life thanks to the forefront two theatres: the Civic, which was destroyed by bombing, and the Politeama Margaret, which stood where today the namesake hotel is.
The resurrection of Cagliari after the Second World War, and especially after the 1943 bombings, has the flavour of liberation and pride. Not only revived but expanded the old Cagliari, hosting many people from the countries, not only neighbours, moved into the city to find work and establish new economic activities: this is the case with many taverns and restaurants emerged in the streets around Via Roma. The town where everyone knew metropolis has become just think that 50% of the houses were built between 1951 and 1971. New suburbs have sprung up along the routes of Via Dante, Viale Diaz and Via Is Mirrionis. The booming residential and commercial has given a new appearance but still not fully understood because it has come to clear implementation of urban design.
Looking at Cagliari from the sea remains the suggestion to enter into a spectacular city, easy to see the views of immediacy, and continuous changes in multiple points of view. The taste of African palm and yellow limestone is dissolved by an architecture distinctly Western, just the combination of characters so far, makes the city unique in its diversity.
