S'Arbaresca
THE JARGON OF THE COPPERSMITHS IN ISILI

It should be noted that the gergante isilese is usually the retailer, not the craftsman who builds the items in the country as evidenced by the near absence in the jargon of those words more directly related to the technical phase of the process.

The jargon is erroneously considered by some as a tool that helps in the sales operations of the objects, and the bargaining that allows cheating and subterfuge, but that does not correspond to reality. It is rather an aggregation factor for a category of workers placed in a low step of the Sardinian society. It is used much more often in moments of pause and encounter between the various groups of coppersmiths that on long trips away from home where they find themselves.
