Nurra A.T. - Nurra Antagonist Tourism
29th of May 2011, Nuraghe Nieddu (ENI's Industrial area).
Realized during the local initiative Monumenti Aperti 2011 (Open Monuments).
The second episode of Anarchaeology proposed by Az.Namusn.Art takes us to visit
the most important and unreachable between the sites of Northern Sardinia Nuraghe
Anarchaeology boost continues, the disruptive idea of Az.Namusn.Art. for a free tourism, aware, and thus, implicitly subversive. After the setting up at the museum Antiquarium Turritano, with the "findings" that emerged from the excavation of an abandoned warehouse in the Industrial Area of Porto Torres, Sunday, May 29th, happened the first organized tour to one of the many archaeological sites hidden in the area. Real reserves of history and culture in the open fields, but stolen to the citizens, swallowed by the Industry or by some unclear speculation.
With NURRA A.T., however, began the re-appropriation of these treasures. At Monumenti Aperti 2011 (Open Monuments), in fact, that organized the opening of 20 monuments, the artistic collective has brought to the public attention the 21st one, the most mysterious and impenetrable. Around 4.15 p.m., breaking the rules that protect private property of the privileged one (ENI), a group of 25 people were improperly introduced into the location of Nuraghe Nieddu (the Black Nuraghe), one of the best preserved of the territory, but inaccessible since years to the public.
The day, in total disregard of the police force, a tour, guided by an expert archaeologist, took place followed by a picnic with the partecipation of artists, students and families. A peaceful but firm revendication, for their cultural heritage. The confirmation of the right/duty to break an abstract rule, which penalizes alternative resources to survive to the failure and the degradation of the Industrial Area. An incentive for Antagonist Tourism, first as a cultural resource than speculative. A petition for free will and identity consciousness.
The group says:
"Once again we put our safety in a risk for the sake of culture, land and those living there.
We claim that ENI, as it has pollutted should clean up the mess, starting with bonifications.
We expect that ENI take charge of the costs to start the excavation for the Nuraghe Nieddu to make it protected and visitable.
In memory of someone who is no longer with us, because the victim of a legalized genocide."
