Villanovaforru is a town of 675 inhabitants, located 310 meters above sea level in the Province of South Sardinia, its territory covers an area of 11,00 sq km.
Located in the center of the system Marmillan hill, which overlooks and dominates the Campidani of Cagliari and Oristano, Villanovaforru is a village of about 700 inhabitants, distant about fifty kilometers from Cagliari.
Until a few decades ago it was almost entirely unknown, a small farming town, which often was not even in the maps.
On the other hand it was cut off from the main roads.
Today Villanovaforru is known in all parts of the world, and has become a cultural landmark and tourist center of international importance due to the discovery of the Nuraghe Genna Maria and the opening of the Museum of Archaeology.

The miracle has happened thanks to the intuition and the ability to exploit the culture and ancient history of the country, such as economic resources and industrial products to sell and market.
