In this paper a reconstruction of the recent dynamics of Sardinian population, using official data published by ISTAT, is proposed. The period under analysis is characterized by a declining growth rate of the population. Moreover, the Island’s population has decreased in absolute terms between 1991 and 2001 Censuses (first preliminary data), and this happens for the first time after three centuries of continuous growth. The point is that, though Sardinia’s fertility transition was later compared to other regions of Italy, in the last decades fertility has rapidly fallen towards the minimum values observed in Italy. In this context some factors associated with the rapid change of nuptial and reproductive behaviours are discussed.
