Sassari LA CAVALCATA SARDA

Cavalcata Sarda - Sardinia

The first edition of the CAVALCATA SARDA through the images of the freres Lumiere

The Cavalcata Sarda is a fascinating exhibition of Sardinian costumes, an amazing display of colors, a parade which gathers thousands of people of all ages in their traditional costumes from all over the island. The edition of 23 May 1999 celebrated the centenary of the Cavalcata organized in 1899, in honor of King Umberto I and Queen Margherita on an official visit in Sardinia. But it was also be the 50th edition of the modern Cavalcata, which was organized again in 1951 to welcome the participants of a Rotary Club congress and has since become a yearly spring festival.
