Sebastiano Satta

Sebastiano Satta

Sebastiano Satta - "Bustianu" - an undisputed prince of Nuoro’s court and foreseer of the resurrection of Sardinia between the two centuries and singer of folk life, is one of the most cherished figures of Nuoro. Satta was friend to all the important artists - including Grazia Deledda, Francesco Ciusa and Antonio Ballero, that shared his passion for painting and photography -, who animated the context of the cultural and the moral redemption of the Island between the 19th and 20th century with him. However, he is also remembered for his commitment to legally defend the most vulnerable social groups, his political activism as a humanitarian socialist, and the poetic skills that he used to show his love for his homeland, its people and its customs, its rituals and its identity myths. In 1967 the artist Costantino Nivola from Orani redesigned the square that bears his name in Nuoro, where the lawyer-writer’s home is. In 2014 the homonymous Public Library of Nuoro, which keeps the legacy of his office archive and his books, held an important conference on international studies on the occasion of the centenary of his death.
