The Ethnographic Museum - Luigi Cocco collection is located in the historic center of the city of Cagliari. The Museum is a collection of Sardinian works of art and crafts. The Museum was named after Luigi Cocco magistrate who during his life has collected a large nucleus of works of art of the Sardinian tradition and craftsmanship. Cocco started his collection in the hometown of Villasor and then moved throughout the island. This activity allowed him to collect about two thousand objects, dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century. In 1948 the entire collection was bound by the ministry as a "complex of exceptional artistic and historical interest" and subsequently purchased in 1954 by the Sardinia Region. The collection consists of a total of 731 textile pieces, a group of tools, furniture or carving works and 1266 jewels that make it unique and of inestimable value.
