Resumen: “... If we can possess Sardinia we will not need either of Malta or the other. It as naval and military station and the most important of the Mediterranean island has at its northern end the most beautiful harbor in the world. La Maddalena is a 24-hour sail from Toulon ...’’ (Nelson, 1803). In this epistle sent by Admiral Nelson, there is the importance of La Maddalena and its archipelago have had for three centuries until today. A long appendix on the southern side of the archipelago, Punta Rossa is the strategic crossroads of the Mediterranean since the Navy of the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1887 he built the battery of Punta Rossa, which was hand-built with blocks of granite and concrete. To defend against air strikes, other peripherals bases were built later well camouflaged in the landscape. So between the First and Second World War, even within the area it was built an anti-aircraft battery and torpedoes station. Ultimately these military fortifications are of particular interest, not only because they clearly express functional parameters but, above all, for their impressive appearance, the insertion in the nature, the juxtaposition of elements of containment walls and the support which constitute as many cues that reveal the outside. The logic of the defense then determined the morphology and distribution of fortified architecture on the ground, forcing the architect and then the military engineer to overlook all aspects generally found in any other work construction and to develop tools and technological synthesis methods in the knowledge that the verification of their insights would take place at a time of conflict.
