Political structure:
Sardinia is an autonomous region within the Italian republic. The island has four provinces: Cagliari, Oristano, Nuoro and Sassari.

Agriculture - fruit and vegetables, grapes, olives and citrus - and stock farming - sheep, goats, pigs and cows - are the backbone of the island economy. Tourism and related activities have known a significant growth over the past years. Still the unemployment rate lies far above average, over 20 %. This is also due to the fact that many local workers have seasonal contracts.
