In literature, the nuraghi, megalithic towers, are studied as separete cases. The proposed study aims instead at analysing them as a whole taking as a empirical reference in the case of Sinis, within the territory of Cabras (central-western Sardinia). By means of a visual connection between the various nuraghi, it is possible to trace 'paths' of information exchange with which it is hypothesised that the ancient architectures interacted in synergy in order to protect their mother city, currently under the waters of the Cabras pond, in the Conca Illonis area. The results of the analysis allow us to imagine a new possible analysis model that illustrates the functioning of the nuraghi and a nuragic dwelling settlement of considerably larger dimensions than any known to date in Sardinia.
