When D.H. Lawrence set out to travel to Sardinia in 1921 he would not have known the cultural significance of the book that followed from his trip – Sea and Sardinia.

With the support of the D.H. Lawrence Society of Great Britain, and the expert advice offered by Nick Ceramella, vice President of the Society, Return to Sea and Sardinia will follow in the footsteps of Lawrence’s journey 100 years on from the day he set out. Capturing the journey for posterity will be photographer Daniele Marzeddu.
The journey and film
January 2021 sees the centenary of D.H. Lawrence’s documented trip that resulted in his acclaimed book, Sea and Sardinia.

Return to Sea and Sardinia will follow in the footsteps of Lawrence’s journey exactly 100 years on from the day he set out.

The centre piece of the project will be the film that records Lawrence’s retraced journey – scheduled for release at arts and cultural venues across the UK and Sardinia in April 2021.

Return to Sea and Sardinia will also curate captured material into a limited-edition photo book, featuring a commentary about the locations and scenes as they existed in Lawrence’s day and also today, 100 years on.
