Dario Sestu is a stone mason. Looking at his hands, one is struck by the observation that his fingers appear to be composed of granite, the stone which makes up Sardinia itself.
When you''re on the island, you''re not only captivated by the colors of the sea, but also by Sardinia''s geological makeup. Take a look around and behold with your eyes sites like the famous animal cliffs: the Elephant ledge in Castelsardo, the Bear Head in Palau and the Tortoise in Dorgali. These are sculptures of stone, which have been shaped by wind, water and the passing of time.
Sardinian granite begins its trip from Buddoso and other villages in its interior, eventually ending up in all corners of the world, from the skyscrapers of Tokyo and Manhattan to the boulevards of the Latin Quarter in Paris.
