About Province of Nuoro

The Province of Nuoro (Italian: Provincia di Nuoro; Sardinian: Prov├Čntzia de N├╣goro) is a province in the autonomous region of the island of Sardinia, Italy. Its capital is the city of Nuoro.

It has an area of 5,638 square kilometers (2,177 square miles) and, as of 2017 , a total population of 210,972. The province is divided into 74 municipalities, the largest of which are Nuoro (36,925 inhabitants), Siniscola (11,492), Macomer (10,043) and Dorgali (8,576). The other municipalities are not generally so large, although they can be considered Oliena (7,123 intabani) and Orosei (7,025) as well as populated cities.

The province was founded in 1927. In 2005 the territory of the Province of Nuoro was substantially reduced following the establishment of four new provinces on the island.

The province is home to some of the wildest and most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. [Citation needed] Part of these landscapes has been included in the Gulf of Orosei and Gennargentu National Park which straddles the border between the provinces of Nuoro and Ogliastra.

The Province of Nuoro is one of the least densely populated areas in Europe. [Citation needed] However, it is known for its high concentration of centenarians and supercentenarians. From March 5, 2001 to January 3, 2002, Antonio Todde of Tiana was the oldest man in the world.
