Festival dei Tacchi 2017

The “Tacchi” are high rock outcroppings, a sort of small plateaus with steep walls. But, from August 3rd to 10th, they will become the background of an event that offers theatre, nature, culture and excursions: it’s the 2017 edition of Festival dei Tacchi. It will take place in Jerzu, Ulassai and Osini.


The program of the 2017 edition

Among the artists that will perform during the festival, there are:

  • Marco Paolini;
  • Ascanio Celestini;
  • Gardi Hutter;
  • Michela Murgia.

Among the performances, it is worth mentioning: Macbettu (Macbeth in Sardinian language); Cielo nero (by Cada Die Teatro, the war is the main theme); “Macbeth in a kitchen” (Teatro Invito); a tribute to Nivola (Italian artists and sculptor).

And the Festival dei Tacchi 2017 will be much more: activities for children, workshops, yoga, and bicycle tours.


A land to discover

The “tacchi” are just one of the many treasures that Ogliastra can offer:

  • Among the many places to see, there are Gennargentu, Bari Sardo, the forests of Bingionniga and Montarbu;
  • Since the festival will take place in summer, there are all the conditions to see the most beautiful beaches in Ogliastra: Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Biriola, Cala Mariolu, Cala Goloritzé, Porto Frailis, San Gemiliano;
  • If you need other ideas for excursions, there are the most beautiful caves in Ogliastra: Su Marmuri, Grotta del Fico, Grotta Taquisara, Grotta di Su Meraculu.
