The paper aims to illustrate what type of traces the relationship between Arabs and Sardinia left in the island, when it was a political and religious reality living at the border of three muslim areas: Spain, Maghreb and Sicily. Following previous research I carried out on the topic, I give results about the linguistic and the historical effects of the contact between Sardinia and Arab countries, especially between the island and northern Africa.
