Isili's copper history

More information can be found in a publication A Museum for Art Copper curated by Sandro Ghiani, which contains a list of coppersmiths from Isili since 1789, formulated by the rapporteur Giovanni Usai on the basis of a research on the parish and municipal registers, which takes under examination the entire 1800s. The first names that appear in this list are: Ibba Joseph ramero, which in 1789 is cabrero de la capilla of Rosary street and, in 1829 Giannantonio Atzeni ramero of Nurri but resident in Isili.
Although there are no systematic studies on the processing of copper in Sardinia, on the bases of what has been said so far and on the elderly memory of coppersmiths, it can be said that there are many involved in this activity, with the occasional presence of people from the peninsula, especially from Calabria and Naples. Some of these figures decide over time to implant themselves in Sardinia, and to open up shops.
