Santu Pedru is the district where breeders once lived and, along with the district of Seuna, it represents the ancient part of the city of Nuoro. Grazia Deledda was born here in 1871, in a house typical of the wealthy class in Barbagia, where she lived until her marriage in 1900. The following year, the leading Sardinian writer moved to Rome and only returned to her hometown sporadically, so the house was sold. The Municipality of Nuoro bought it back in 1968, giving it to the Regional Ethnographic Institute (ISRE), which set up a museum, thanks to the collaboration of the artist’s heirs, inaugurated in 1983. Exploring the ten rooms on three levels inside the house, you will discover the unbreakable bond between Deledda and her place of origin and you will travel through time amidst the evidence of culture and society in Nuoro between the late 19th and early 20th century.
