Welcome to Aritzo

The lucrative business of snow gathering put Aritzo on the map. For some five centuries the village held a monopoly on snow collection and supplied the whole of Sardinia with ice. Snow farmers, known as niargios, collected the white stuff from Punta di Funtana Cungiada (1458m) and stored it in straw-lined wooden chests before sending it off to the high tables of Cagliari.
