First public outing in Alghero for the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella who is spending a period of vacation and rest - far from the pre-electoral political controversies - in the Air Force guesthouse inside the Porto Conte Park.
This morning, around 10.30, the Head of State took part in the Eucharistic celebration in the hamlet of Guardia Grande , not far from his Sardinian "buen retiro". At the end of the ceremony, Mattarella briefly chatted with the parish priest of the Church of Our Lady of the Guard and with the faithful, not shirking the requests for some selfies.
The president could go out again tomorrow to attend the August 15 mass for the Assumption of Mary.
In the meantime, again tomorrow evening, the Head of State could follow the fireworks show for Ferragosto (a tradition from Alghero) from a boat in the roadstead , in front of the port.
There are three visits and excursions that could be part of this year's holiday program, those to the Archaeological Museum of Alghero , to the Nuraghe of Palmavera and to Casa Gioiosa , the seat of the Porto Conte Park .
A return to the Neptune Caves to accompany one of the grandchildren, who last year was unable to take part in the excursion to one of the largest marine caves in Italy, is not excluded.
