On our way from Oristano to the Costa Verde we stopped briefly at the village of Arborea. Founded in 1928 (under Mussolini) it was originally called "Mussolina", and 4,000 settlers from Venetia were transferred here. Later the village was renamed to "Arborea", honoring the Sardic hero Eleonora d'Arborea.
