    Between history, knights and stars: the Sartiglia of Oristano

    Annual

    The Sartiglia of Oristano is a traditional festival with ancient roots that celebrates history, culture and equestrian skill. Deriving from the Latin "Sorticula," the term Sartiglia reflects the knights' attempt to hit a hanging star. Its origins date back to the 11th century, evolving from military games to public spectacles in the 15th and 16th centuries. The event includes stages such as the Vestizione, the Corsa alla Stella and the Pariglie, with distinctive costumes for the various flocks. The Sartiglia represents a cultural heritage to be preserved, combining tradition and mystery in an event that links the past to the present.

    Feast of St. Anthony the Abbot - the struggle between good and evil

    Annual

    The Feast of Sant'Antonio Abate is one of the most heartfelt feasts in Sardinia. On the occasion of this festival in so many towns in Sardinia, large bonfires are lit in honor of the saint; in Mamoiada it coincides with the first seasonal outing of the famous "Mamuthones" and "Issohadores" masks who do a ritual dance around the bonfires. Many Mamoiadinians living abroad prefer to return to the village for Sant'Antonio Abate rather than for the Christmas holidays precisely because they are deeply attached to this holiday. The connection to this saint is so deep that many emigrants who are unable to return to Sardinia for the festival organize the lighting of fires directly in the places where they reside.
