The Costa Smeralda is a large holiday resort developed on an untouched region in Sardinia from 1961. The architectural style of Costa Smeralda was above-all defined by its subordination into landscape at all scales. For this study primary sources were opened and consulted for the first time. The research shows that the Costa Smeralda demonstrates multi-layered relevant characteristics as a physical manifestation of a network, as a representation of an architectural era and, as the result of a controlled large-scale planning framework, has influenced the whole region.
