Also in the town of Mamoiada the rites of the Holy Week are still vivid and warmly felt. It begins with the Palm's Sunday, but only with the Holy Thursday you can enter in the very middle of the Passion of Gesus Christ. To the rite of "Lavabis" once some characters, today disappeared, took part: for example "Sos Croffarios" that is to say the members of local Confraternities.
The procession starts from a certain point of the town and proceeds in meeting all the churches. The day following the procession proceeds in the contrary direction. For sure, the most touching event is that of "S'Iscravamentu" (the unailing) during the Holy Friday, a real theatrical representation, today still deeply felt in the religious sensibility of the local people. Once the Christ is get off from the cross, he is carried out towards the characters of the Marias and in that very moment a very touching singing of pain begins. At its own end, the statue of Christ lies on a wood litter and carried in procession towards the burial site of  the Saint Cross Church.
On the Sunday of Eastern, at eleven o'clock, the sound of the bells "Su tohu 'e gloria" (The sound of glory) announces the resurrection of Christ whom will be going to meet his mother the Madonna in Santa Croce Square. Than both statues are transported in procession following different itineraries: the statue of the Madonna leaves from the Church of Our Lady of Loreto, where it stays all the year long, and the statue of Christ from the Church of Santa Maria. They are supposed to meet each other at Santa Croce where "Sos Accanzadores) wearing typical costums (the Accanzadores are the men that carrie the statues) will let them bow the one in front of the other. The two processions, to which for some year numerous women and men  wearing the traditional costume have taken part, will unite in order to proceed towards the Main church where the liturgic ceremony begins.
