[1] A reference to the Italian laws of the nineteenth century who imposed the forced privatization of lands in contrast to the ancient Sardinian custom of common use of farming and grazing lands. The privatization often took place with fraud, leading abuses and oppressions, and took along a trail of revenges and hatreds. This strophe is taken from the poem “Tancas serradas a muru” by Melchiorre Murenu (1803-1854), known as the Sardinian Homer because of his early blindness.
