Made in Sardinia
Both for the beaches or the inner areas, Sardinia offers natural sets and sceneries which are ideal for every kind of production. The mild and temperate weather all over the year, make the Island a special place where to shoot all the seasons.
In this section you can find all the information on the most significant productions (film, fiction TV, documentaries, clips, ads) which have been shot in the Island or which are in preparation.
During the years, Sardinia has been the set of several cinematographic and TV productions. Starting from the first Lumière newsreel, then with the second post-war period film production (the most important author is Fiorenzo Serra) which tells the shift from an agropastoral Island to an industrialized society. In the middle, the ’60s and ’70s, of the “Spaghetti western”, where the island is the scenery for its natural and landscape features, till the most recent Guy Ritchie’s "Swept Away" (2002), remake of a Lina Wertmuller’s film, and Sabina Guzzanti’s "Le ragioni dell'aragosta" (2007).
The ads shot in the Island by big advertising agencies are several: from the adverts for the main car industries to the mobile telephony ones, set on the south-east coasts or in the typical rural landscapes of the Island.
