Legend has it that thousands of years ago, the wise elderly of the Nuragic civilization gathered in the sacred enclosure of the village of the Serra. A vision had shaken their minds: soon the nuragic population would undergo radical changes, that would lead them to lose their footing. This was followed by solemn moments of prayer and sacred rites, to protect the evidence of their passage on earth and the only writing that would echoed over millennia: The Stones – Le Pietre – Is Perdas. Those same stones, of which some were chosen and deliberately positioned by the elderly on the crest of the Giara seabed, as witnessed, waited for someone ready to move them to revive the story.
The first stone
Three thousand years later two young brothers loved to find themselves playing in their favorite place, the bottom of the Giara di Serri, known as “Fund e Caronas”.
One day, while climbing on the ridge, the two children rolled stones towards the valley bottom, and one of these in particular stopped in the land where the family stable was located. After their initial dismay, the brothers quietly resumed playing, unaware of what would happen in the not so distant future.
Growing up away from home, with memories in their minds and hearts of those carefree games of their childhood, they found themselves in a particular moment of their lives making choices. Driven by a strong feeling, almost like a mission, they decided to join forces and carry out a project that would tell their culture and tradition to the whole world. The realization of a reality in which people could immerse themselves in an authentic context and live new experiences, to regenerate the spirit and feel good.
And so it was that, starting from that stone that had fallen years before, near their stable, the two children, who had now grown up, began to concretize the mission that the wise ancestors had entrusted them with the millennia before.
Stone after stone, with dedication and determination, Is Perdas was finally born.
The Stones, “IS PERDAS”, since the Nuragic era represent the essential and characteristic element for the realization of the millennial constructions, the Nuraghe.
Over time they have been used by various civilizations for the construction of the numerous dry-stone walls that can still be admired today and which, together with the green lentisks and fragrant myrtles, outline the boundaries of the ancient Sardinian lands and preserve precious secular olive trees and vineyards.
