For those who want to know more about of Sardinia's people, we suggest to visit the Ethnographic Museum Francesco Bande that is placed in Sassari, Via Muroni 44. There are exposed bride dresses, daily dresses and widow dresses of some areas of the island, collected and preserved from the mastro Bande. Some dresses are dated '1700. You be able to admire typical island musican instrument, like “launeddas”, musical instruments that was used from Sardinia's shepherd.
