The Carnival of Mamoiada is among the oldest folkloric events in Sardinia. It is a heartfelt happening, a moment of intense popular participation for the whole village whose inhabitants gather in the main square to dance all evening long "su passu torràu", "su sàrtiu" and "su dillu". But everyone's attention is focused on the parade of the Mamuthones and Issohadores, Sardinia's most renowned masks. The end of the Carnival is symbolised by the mask of "Juanne Martis Sero". On Mardi Gras, this puppet is placed on a cart and driven through the streets of the village by men dressed as "zias" and "zios", mourners who grieve his death and sing their bereavement. As a conclusion to three days of dancing and parading on the square and through the village streets of local production and a traditional dish of broad beans and pork, generously accompanied by the execellent local "vinu nigheddu" (red wine).
