From 31th August to 3rd September, the Valley of the Moon hosts the festival Musica sulle Bocche. The musical notes of this other prestigious jazz event of North Sardinia will resound among the white granite rocks near Santa Teresa di Gallura. The atmosphere of Valley of the Moon is the magic ingredient that since 2001 contributes to the success of Musica sulle Bocche. Its famous sunsets with the Strait of Bonifacio in the background will become even more stunning and unforgettable thanks to jazz music and not only (here the festival program).

The excellence of Sardinian wine
During Gallura-Emerald Coast summer 2017, the culinary tradition could not be absent. Gallura, kissed by the sun and shaped by the wind, is renowned for its fine wines. The picturesque village of Aggius on 5th August 2017 hosts the 5th appointment of the event “Territori del vino e del gusto”. The event involves almost 100 wineries representing the Consorzio del Carignano del Sulcis and the four Sardinian Wine Roads: Vermentino DOCG, Cannonau, Malvasia and Sardegna Nord Ovest. The program includes guided tastings with chefs and sector professionals. The fine wines of Sardinia will accompany the typical local dishes related to the Sardinian tradition, which combine delicate flavours of the sea with the decided taste of the products of the land.
“Territori del vino e del gusto” is organized by the Tourism, Crafts, and Commerce Department in collaboration with LAORE Regional Agency, the involved municipal administrations, the four Sardinian Wine Roads and the Carignano Consortium.
But events in Emerald Coast, Porto Cervo and throughout Gallura for summer 2017 do not end there. We recommend other two significant appointments. The first is the exhibition “Andy Warhol vip society Porto Cervo” scheduled from 30th June to 17th September at the Hotel Cervo Conference Center. The exhibition, organized by Marriott Costa Smeralda and Fondazione Mazzoleni, collects 188 original works by the great American artist and some of its memorabilia.
