The Sanna outside the Sanna. Cults and religiosity in Sardinia prehistory.

The Museo archeologico nazionale Sanna, to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of Giovanni Antonio Sanna, politician and businessman that contributed with a rich collection of relics and paintings to the creation of the most important museum of the city of Sassari, will be the center of a series of events that will involve different locations of the Polo Museale of Sardinia and important cultural reality of the territory. After the closure to the public for restoration, restructuring and reorganization, the museum will talk about itself from outside its walls, with stories tied to the collections, the most significant relics, and their origin, following a chronological journey from prehistory to the contemporary age.
