Cerdeña (Sardegna, en italiano; Sardigna o Sardìnnia, en sardo; Sardenya en catalán; Saldìgna en gallurés; Sardhìgna en sasarés) es la segunda isla en tamaño del Mediterráneo, la octava de Europa y la 46.ª del mundo. Como ente administrativo se denomina Región Autónoma de Cerdeña y es una región autónoma con estatuto especial dentro de la República Italiana. Esta isla se encuentra en el centro del mar Mediterráneo occidental, entre Córcega al norte de la que la separa el estrecho de Bonifacio, la península italiana al este, Túnez al sur, y las islas Baleares al oeste. Ocupa una superficie de 24.090 km², un área similar a la de la Comunidad Valenciana. La isla tiene una geoformación antigua y, a diferencia de Sicilia y la Italia continental, no tiene riesgo sísmico. Sus rocas datan del Paleozoico (hasta 500 millones de años de antigüedad). Debido a los largos procesos de erosión las tierras altas de la isla, formadas de granito, esquisto, traquita, basalto (llamados jarras o gollei), arenisca y caliza dolomítica (llamados tonneri), media entre 300 a 1.000 metros. English Sardinia (pronounced /sɑrˈdɪniə/; Italian: Sardegna, [sarˈdeɲɲa]; Sardinian: Sardigna or Sardinnya [sarˈdinja]) is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea (after Sicily and before Cyprus). It is an autonomous region of Italy, and the nearest land masses are (clockwise from north) the French island of Corsica, the Italian Peninsula, Sicily, Tunisia and the Spanish Balearic Islands. The name Sardinia is from the pre-Roman noun *sard[], romanised as sardus (feminine sarda); that the name had a religious connotation is suggested from its use also as the adjective for the ancient Sardinian mythological hero-god Sardus Pater "Sardinian Father" (misunderstood by many modern Sardinians/Italians as being "Father Sardus"), as well as being the stem of the adjective "sardonic". Sardinia was called Ichnusa (the Latinised form of the Greek Hyknousa), Sandalion, Sardinia and Sardo by the ancient Greeks and the Romans. Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, with an area of 23,821 km². It is situated between 38° 51' and 41° 15' latitude north and 8° 8' and 9° 50' east longitude. The coasts of Sardinia (1,849 km long) are generally high and rocky, with long, relatively straight stretches of coastline, many outstanding headlands, a few wide, deep bays, rias, many inlets and with various smaller islands off the coast. The island has an ancient geoformation and, unlike Sicily and the mainland of Italy, is not earthquake-prone. Its rocks date from the Palaeozoic Era (up to 500 million years old) Ver en grande y negro _ view in large and black !!
