In the 1970s, 5178 stone fragments dating back to the XI-VIII cent. BC, representing archers, boxers, warriors and nuraghe models were excavated by the Archaeological Superintendence of Cagliari (Sardinia) from the funerary and sacred area of Monte Prama, near Cabras, Oristano. The statues are known today as the Giants of Mont’e Prama due to their impressive dimensions, more than two meters in height. The monumental statues shed new light on the art and culture of the Sardinian people.
In 2007 the CCA, Centro di Conservazione Archeologica of Rome, was engaged in design and implement a conservation project finalized to put the statues in display in Museum. This article summarizes all the multidisciplinary aspects of the project carried out.
