If your holiday destination this year is Sardinia, beautiful Italian island, be prepared to deal with some very difficult names to pronounce.
It is not a big surprise: in its ancient history the Sardinian dialect has been influenced by many languages, from Catalan to Spanish and from Tuscan to Genoese. The result is an almost incomprehensible idiom with unpronounceable place name. Here are a few.
