Llua is when the sun comes out and the elders gather by the port’s benches.
Llua is when guys stand around chatting and smoking cigarettes.
Llua is a word without a precise translation even in Italian.
It comes from the ancient Catalan and it stands
for a mindset unique to Alghero, a coastal city located in Sardinia, Italy.

As the summer’s warmth begins to fade, the city is blanketed by quiet.
Alghero, beyond the postcard facade, appears like a place suspended, waiting for something that might never come.

Llua reveals a reality related to many other cities dealing with seasonal waves. The territory and climate deeply affects the inhabitants, as they experience the consequences of the off-season, and the absence of their vital resource, tourism.
