The Greeks called it Hyknusa or Ichnussa (Ιχνουσσα), from the Greek ichnos (human footprint) because of its resemblance to a large footprint, but Sardinia takes its name from the Latin Sardinia, as the Romans called it.
Cagliari is a fascinating city even if it does not have important elements of grandeur and offers a sometimes resigned image of itself, which changes according to the approach of who look at it and know it for the first time.
Sardinia's per capita GDP is just over €20,000 per inhabitant, making it one of the poorest regions in Italy. The lack of the infrastructure network and the fact of being an island region are the main causes of the lack of economic development.
Sardinia's economy is mainly based on the tertiary sector, although a significant role is played by both the industrial and the agro-pastoral sectors.
