VITTORIO MURA, the KNIFE MAKER MASTER AND EXPERT IN SARDINIAN POETRY has recently passed away at the age of 80. He was born from a blacksmith family in Santullussurgiu, province of Oristano. He inherited the art of forging metal from his father, learning how to bend materials with his inborn artistic abilities, mixing traditional materials (iron and animal antlers) with precious metals. His resolzas are unique and sought-after in the market. His workshop is still today a common destination for collectors and tourists. Vittorio Mura was also very fond of poetry, singing and music, strictly in "Limba" (Sardinian language). The skilful Sardinian guitar player and determined supporter of "canto in re sa lussurzesa” taught this technique to many youngsters of the town. Among scholars of Sardinian literature, he was famous for having collected and published the work of two poets from Bortigali: Pantaleo Serra and Anna Maria Massidda. He also published an anthology of his poetical works “Iscremios De fraile”. The family tradition in knife making, handed down by five generations, dates back to the first half of the 1800s to the founder Balloe Mura. In recent times, the tradition is carried forward by Vittorio’s sons: Mario, Piero, Tonio and Luciano. The most important awards given in events of the sector are: the Award Mariangela Meloni Tanchis of Santu Lussurgiu and the Golden Medal for best knife won in the show of Macomer (NU) in 1984.
