On the last Sunday and the last Tuesday of the carnival in Oristano it takes place the famous “Sa Sartiglia”, an old equestrian relaxing game of the XVI century. The protagonist of the manifestation is “Su Componidori”, an enigmatic figure, attractive because of the gorgeousness of his androgen mask which guides the other knights. Organized from two Gremi or Corporations, on Sunday from the countrymen and on Tuesday from the carpenters, Sa Sartiglia begins with the dandification of the chief runner by young ladies in traditional costumes, called “is massaieddas”. Proceeded by the “Bettenieri” and by the tambourines behind the masked cavaliers, “Su Componidori” crosses the city blessing the population with “Sa Pippa e Maju”. (Springtime flowers). The event takes place in via del Duomo where a star hangs on a green silk cordon in which the knights must impale their swords running galloping on their horses. Counting the impaled stars they decide the auspices for the next year.
