RE: [Discussion Post] What is your favorite event in your country's history?
No doubt! The most loved and followed event in my region is the Festa di Sant'Efisio which takes place every year on the first day of May. This is a very ancient festival and it is the testimony of the great devotion of the people of Sardinia for the Saint Efisio who in 1657 freed the city from a serious plague epidemic that decimated the population.
It is a festival of great devotion during which all the countries of my region parade wearing traditional clothes.
Beautiful clothes, also rich in ornaments. A feast also for the eyes. Think that this ancient event was proposed for recognition by UNESCO, as a heritage of humanity.
Sounds colors and traditional customs parade in Cagliari to the delight of many tourists and visitors. For me an unmissable moment to take some nice pictures.
Every year I follow this event with my camera and I try to stop my attention on the thousand details of the clothes and the scenography. Every year a different and always exciting show.
But if you want to know more I have already had the opportunity to write a post recently on this party. This is the link.
