Invitation to the palace
The patriot tenor
On October 18, 1810, the parish priest Don Antonio Cao recorded the baptism of Giovanni Matteo, born the previous day, legitimate son of the Illustrious Mr. Cavaliere, in the register of the Cathedral of Cagliari Don Stefano De Candia of Alghero (Captain and Adjutant of His Royal Highness) and Donna Caterina Grixoni of Ozieri.
Mario De Candia - destined to become one of the greatest tenors of the nineteenth century - he was born 28 years later on the stage of the Rue Lepelletier theater, in Paris, after the composer Giacomo Meyerbeer had convinced him to debut as the protagonist of his opera "Robert le Diable" .
In the Castle
Among the historic districts of Cagliari, Castello it is the one that has best preserved the original constituent elements, starting with the road layout and the character of the buildings.
The changes present are a consequence of the intense aerial bombardments of the allies in the winter of 1943: some buildings were destroyed, some were rebuilt with the current typology (1950-1960), others restored or conspicuously consolidated and still others - unfortunately - left in a state of rubble. .
