S'Arbaresca
THE JARGON OF THE COPPERSMITHS IN ISILI

The Calabrian people were the bearers of the new technical knowledge, especially in the field of tinning, with the use of acids, that for that time was a big improvement, since only with the nineteenth century the chemical industry could produce such products on an industrial scale, while in the centuries before their manufacture was still a bargain by most alchemist from the factory itself.

A new branch of metallurgy was born in those years, as a result of the new processes of metal rolling, the gutter, and they were always the Calabrian that gave life to a set of workshops in many centers of Sardinia, and those provided for the needs of agricultural activities: tin for milk jugs, funnels, forms for the cheese etc and they ensured the maintenance of the copper objects and their tinning.
