Malaria in Sardinia (The Rockefeller Foundation Annual Report 1949)

The Rockefeller Foundation Annual Report 1949 

"For hundreds years the Italian Island of Sardinia was known as an unhealthy place to live. Its 9,300 square miles supported only one-third as many persons per square mile as the mainland of Italy. Although the mainland became overcrowded, were unwilling to emigrate to Sardinia. The big reason for this was malaria."
