SARTIGLIA IN ORISTANO 11/13 FEBRUARY 2018

The celebrations of the New Year have just ended and the next big events are already being prepared.

One of the most spectacular happenings in Sardinia during Carnival is the traditional and unique equestrian performance, la Sartiglia, which takes place in Oristano (North West of Sardinia) this year on 11 and 13 February.

The main figure of the ride is Su Componidori, a horseman dressed in a fascinating rite and becomes the king of the celebrations. The riders wear a large white embroidered cape with a camellia pinned on, a black top hat and a wooden mask with delicate almost androgynous lines, which give it a magical look.

The horsemen gallop through the narrow streets of the town centre and try to spear with their swords a silver star which is hung across their path. At the end of the ride the event continues with daring horseback acrobatics a thigh speed. But the most exciting and spectacular moment of the show is when younger ones ride in the same way taking everybody’s breath away.

If you are around Oristano at this time of the year, don’t miss this exceptional experience!
