Sartiglia

Masked riders wearing Sardinian and Spanish traditional dresses try, one at a time and galloping, to string with a sword a star hanging by a green ribbon taut in front of the town’s cathedral. The farmers’ and the artisans’ corporations, compete for the following years’ best harvest, which will go to the one catching the greatest number of stars. During the race to the ring around 80 horsemen, follow one another at the sound of trumpets and drums while the town’s people, never as united as in this event, follow carefully their running to see who will make it in the strenuous deed. The event closes with ‘le pariglie’, acrobatic performances generally carried out by three horsemen and women at a time.
