“Su Carrasegare Lussurzesu”


The small village of Sardinia called Santu Lussurgiu hosts the traditional Carnival characterized by a horserace in pairs, “Su carrasegare Lussurzesu” (Santu Lussurgiu’ s Carnival) which lasts three days and the horse race replays every afternoon. The core of Carnival is the Sunday’s race, and it is called “Sa Carrela ‘e Nanti” and during the competitions in pairs featuring the horsemen perform breath-taking feats on horseback offering a fantastic show. At the race departure, in pairs, the horsemen launch into the race at full speed. They aim to perform and conclude the course joined in a pair, with one’s harm on the companion’s shoulder as to symbolize communion, harmony, friendship, and solidarity. The following Monday is call “Su Lunisi de sa Pudda” (Monday of the chicken) because horsemen in gallop have to hit and drop a rag hen with a stick. The real hen used to be hit and dropped until a puppet has substituted the 1970s
