In a short story dedicated to bread-making, Grazia Deledda says that it was “a domestic tradition: and in our house, domestic traditions were religion and law”. After all, bread is the emblem of artisan knowledge in Sardinia, handed down from generation to generation, especially among the women of the families. Today the secrets of making it, the typical shapes and the meanings behind traditional Sardinian bread-making are also told in the Ritual Bread Museum in Borore, a small village on a plain of the Abbasanta plateau, at the foot of the Marghine mountain chain, and it is listed as one of the Borghi Autentici d’Italia (Authentic Villages of Italy).

Bread is described not only as an essential nutritional element, but also as a protagonist on special occasions, through the typical products made in numerous Island villages.
