History edit

South Sardinia was instituted as a result of the law reforming provinces in Sardinia (Regional Law 2/2016).[1] Once operational, it will include most of the geographic region of Campidano, the Sarrabus-Gerrei, the Trexenta and the Sulcis-Iglesiente. The provincial capital will be determined by the first provincial council, as well as the institution's statute.[citation needed]
