In the 1960s Claudio Abbado bought a strip of coast in Sardinia as his private retreat. Now his children have agreed that it should become a nature reserve.
‘It is a land that is still miraculously intact, eight hectares of Mediterranean scrub that overlook the coast between the Bombarde and the Lazzaretto and which we have decided to give on loan for free use to Legambiente. Now this nature reserve will become a meeting place for volunteers and students. A place of research and environmental education,’ said his daughter Alessandra.
