Things to do: museums
Orgosolo is a comune (municipality) located in the Province of Nuoro, in the autonomous region of Sardinia, at about 110km north of Cagliari and about 13km south of Nuoro. The municipality is famous for its murales. These political paintings can be found on walls all over Orgosolo. Since about 1969, the murales reflect different aspects of Sardinia's political struggles but also deal with international issues. Vittorio De Seta's movie Banditi a Orgosolo (1961) focuses on the past way of life in central Sardinia and on the phenomenon of "Banditry" in the region. At one time Orgosolo was known as the "village of the murderers" due to its high crime rate. Bandits of the surrounding mountains used the church door to post notices of death sentence passed on their enemies.Cultural eventsSince 2006, Orgosolo hosts a Science Festival, whose peculiarity is in the use of the popular traditions and knowledge as keys to the scientific world. The theme of the 2008 edition (May 30 - June 1) will be "Energy". The theme of the 2007 edition was "Water". The theme of the first edition was "Astronomy".
