A first visit to Sardinia is a matter of familiarizing. Completely new impressions may fill us with curiosity, uncertainty. Will it be a pleasant stay? Maybe it is human to look for similarities that will put us at ease, or to see only differences because we are not yet used to it. For the traveller, setting the first step on land, it is the moment of the first impact, like passing through a door that opens into an entirely different world, an island that can almost be called a continent by itself, Sardinia.
