Cagliari means Sun!
Cagliari Sun …ny city of Italy!
We’ve realized that Cagliari = Sun is not just “a
speech in the city”, but a real science-fact.
Reading the book “L’Elefante sulla Torre”
(The Elephant on the Tower) by Francesco Alziator
on the generality of the Italian cities, Cagliari has a huge
average exposure to the sun with more than 2700 hours per year.
We filled interested in, so we woulded understand what
is really the phenomenon of Eliofania (sunshine).
Watching the datas from the various websites of meteo and
wikipedia we also have downloaded a report from the Italian
Air Force such as a study carried out from 1950 to 1985 and
the data compared, testing station to station, are unequivocal.
Cagliari, Alghero and Olbia with Gela and Palinuro (in Sicily)
are the most sunny places in whole Italy thanks to the phenomenon of Sunshine.
Of course at the European level Faro (Portugal)
has a record much greater with 3100 hours per year but
we can really enjoy the fact that Cagliari is absolutely “kissed
by Elios” also statistically and not just as a way of saying!
During the calendar there are 8765 hours per year, not counting
the 50% as night-time, in Cagliari sun shines for 31% of the time 🙂
