Sarroch, (Cagliari)

Sarroch, S'Arroccu in sardinian language, is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Cagliari in the Italian region Sardinia, located about 20 kilometres (12 mi) southwest of Cagliari. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 5,277 and an area of 67.9 square kilometres (26.2 sq mi). Sarroch borders the following municipalities: Assemini, Capoterra, Pula, Villa San Pietro. Sarroch population grows to about 10,000 in the summer with the invasion of the zones of Perda e Sali and Portu Columbu. The origin of the name is mysterious. It might derive from the Phonenician "Sharak" meaning bunch of grapes, or perhaps from the Catalan "S'arroch" with clear reference of the majestic rock that dominates the village. Demographic evolution Saras Sarroch is the location of the oil refinery Saras S.p.A. owned by an important Italian family (Massimo Moratti). The refinery is one of the biggest in Europe and was the subject of scandals related to pollution and public incentives for renewable energy sources and also worker security. In 2009 the documentary-film Oil, based on the story of the refinery, was subject to censorship in Italy. See also Oil, documentary film directed by Massimiliano Mazzotta. It explores the impact of oil development (implemented by the factory of Saras SpA) on the earth and the life of the local population.
