CURIOSITIES

  • During the Holy Week, people used to climb
    the hill of Buon Cammino, listening to what the people who passed by were saying, and they joined these snippets of conversation together to foresee the future. This was called Is Ascurtus.
  • In this period, women generally stopped spinning because tugging a wool thread was like tearing out Christ's hair. For the same reason washing one's hair was not recommended.
  • In ancient times, Is nenniris plants were left to dry and preserved. They were then were used for fumigation (is affumentus in Sardinian) against many illnesses.
