DOM MURGIA & JOE CONNOR SESSION

Lugere team at Nebida

Not even January can stop the sun shining on Sardinia.

In the early days of 2020, the English producer with Sardinian origins, Dominic Murgia, and the visionary and talented director from London, Joe Connor, landed in Sardinia to join the crew of Lùgere for a great tour inside the southern coasts of the island.

Dominic and Joe came back to meet again with our members from the young production company of Mommotty. Among their most important and famous collaborations there is in fact the famous production of the music video for the English band Placebo, for the song Jesus Son, shot in the west coast of Sardinia in the colorful summer of 2016.

In this new location scouting, on the first day of the tour, the crew visited the city of Cagliari, in particular the “Bastione” and the ancient castle neighborhood, the Contivecchi salt flats, the white beach of Poetto, the Marina neighborhood with its characteristic narrow and colorful streets and the small and suggestive gulf of Cala Mosca.

On the following day the group moved further south-west on the island, going to explore the Sulcis area, the beautiful beaches of Chia, Su Guide and Cala Cipolla, Tuerredda, Portu Tramatzu, Porto Budello and the port of Teulada during one of the most beautiful and sun-shining days of the entire winter in Sardinia.

During these first two days of travel, it was not only the magnificent landscapes that remained in the heart of the two English artists, but the magic spirit of Lùgere mission was revealed in its most intense form: it was great to see how creative ideas for new artworks were coming out at every new corner, behind every turn, over every dune, under every tree and every high cliff on the sea suddenly discovered.

During the third day of scouting, in particular, the group had the chance to join forces and discover some of the most suggestive places on the island. We are talking about the coast between the villages of Nebida and Masua, the magnificent glimpse of Pan di Zucchero and the ruins of the Laveria Lamarmora. Together with our guys, Joe and Dom experienced a breathtaking sunset at one of the less mainstream locations in Sardinia, but certainly one among the most intense and magical places on the island.

Before leaving, during the fourth day, the two artists, still eager for discoveries and creative ideas, wanted to think of a return not too far in time, perhaps for some work with an attractive and spectacular look, which was already taking form in their minds. And we, the Lugère team, are already at work to bring them back under the warm spring sun.
