    Default Octopus Garden

    The song Octopus Garden was written by Ringo Starr during a holiday in Sardinia in 1968.

    The idea for the song came when Ringo had temporarily left The Beatles in August 1968. He took his family on a boating holiday in Sardinia. Ringo said, "I wrote Octopus's Garden in Sardinia. Peter Sellers had lent us his yacht and we went out for the day... I stayed out on deck with [the captain] and we talked about octopuses. He told me that they hang out in their caves and they go around the seabed finding shiny stones and tin cans and bottles to put in front of their cave like a garden. I thought this was fabulous, because at the time I just wanted to be under the sea too. A couple of tokes later with the guitar - and we had Octopus's Garden!" It was worked on with George during the Get Back sessions in January 1969. In 1969, George commented, "Octopus's Garden is Ringo's song. It's only the second song Ringo wrote, and it's lovely. Ringo gets bored playing the drums, and at home he plays a bit of piano, but he only knows about three chords. He knows about the same on guitar. I think it's a really great song, because on the surface, it just like a daft kids' song, but the lyrics are great. For me, you know, I find very deep meaning in the lyrics, which Ringo probably doesn't see, but all the thing like 'resting our head on the sea bed' and 'We'll be warm beneath the storm' which is really great, you know. Because it's like this level is a storm, and if you get sort of deep in your consciousness, it's very peaceful. So Ringo's writing his cosmic songs without noticing."

    Default The 2nd european website was developed in Sardinia

    At the CRS4 (Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia) was developed the second european website in 1991 (www.crs4.it) by a sardinian student called Antonio Ticca that was employed as a trainee.

    One of the reasons of this was that in 1991 the president of Crs4 was the nobel prize in physics Carlo Rubbia. who previously worked at the Cern in Geneva, the research center in which few time before was invented the first website in the history.
