Asinara is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, located between the Sardinian Sea to the west, the Corsican Sea to the north and the homonymous gulf to the east; to the south it is separated from the small Isola Piana by a narrow navigable canal, the so-called Passaggio dei Fornelli. It is part of the municipality of Porto Torres, in the province of Sassari, Italy. The Asinara remained closed to the public from 1885 to 1999, in a total isolation strengthened in the early sixties by the institution of the maximum security prison in which they were interned brigades and mobsters such as Raffaele Cutolo and Salvatore Riina. However, the isolation has allowed the preservation of a large part of the natural environment of the island, avoiding the so-called overbuilding, and allowing the birth in 1997 of the Asinara National Park.
