ARDIA
Ardia is a ritual horse-race. It takes place every year in Sedilo, a town in the province of Oristano, the 6th and the 7th of July.
Dozens of horsemen throw themselves in a crazy race in honour of Saint Costantino: devotion, dust, sun, fiery horses, competition... all this is Ardia.

THE HOLY WEEK RITES
Passion, death, life. In Sardinia, faith and tradition meet in the Mistery of the Resurrection of Christ. The Holy Week rites are evocative events that you can't miss.

THE FESTIVAL OF SANT'EFISIO
Sardinia's most important religious event: hundreds of pilgrims gather in Cagliari from all over the Island to honour the Saint, wearing traditional costumes. Decorated carts, dozens of riders, songs, sounds, colours...

MAMUTHONES 
Carnival in Mamoiada,
in the heart of Barbagia black masks, dark, dramatic, sheep skins, cowbells, a rythmical gait, tamed men, a noisy bedlam.

S'URTZU
Carnival in Samugheo,
goat skins and horns, black faces, cowbells, dances, echoes of ancient rites.

MERDULES E BOES 
Carnival in Ottana,
anthropomorphic masks represent the yoking of the oxen and a silent spinner weaves the symbolic thread of life.

THURPOS
Carnival in Orotelli,
a centuries old rural rite. Man imitating the yoked animal.

S'ATTITTIDU 
Carnival in Bosa,
black and white masks, fire-flies, happy spirits in the dark, phallic symbols, satyric songs.

S'URTHU, ZIZZARONE, DON CONTE Carnival in the Barbagia of Ollolai
the terrible Urthos, the enthralling rythm of the drums, Don Conte's trial.

SARDINIAN GASTRONOMY
Food, wine, traditional recipes: if you are interested in one of Sardinia's most fascinating aspects, here are some pages you just can't miss.
