Abstract

The Authority for Land Use and Agriculture in Sardinia (Ente per la Tras- formazione Fondiaria e Agraria in Sardegna – ETFAS) was founded in May 1951 with the goal of reforming agriculture on the Italian island and building infrastructure, towns and centres that would serve the public and social life of settlement assignees. Archival research carried out at the Laore Sardegna Archive of Cagliari and the Archive of the Modern of Mendrisio has brought to light an important number of drawings through the forms of institutional representation encoded in plans, elevations and sections by the architects tasked with the creation of the towns. Particular attention has been given to the representation of public buildings, pre- sented here in a few original drawings and sketches by architects Figini and Pollini for the Porto Conte town in the Alghero territory, and for the service center of Monte Cadelanu in the Sulcis, by architects Zanuso and Crescini.
