Holiday n.2 [3 days, 2 nights]
Living the Fat Tuesday
The Fat Tuesday in Bosa (held on the 5th February) is something unique in the whole world: during the morning, the main road of the town is animated by a crowd dressed in black crying the typical mourning of "S'Attitidu" and playing one of the most original open sky theatre representations around. People is dressed in black acting as old mothers worried about their young doughter that went out partying on the night before and doing crazy things. This is why the old mother goes around asking to have some wine for relief and showing everybody what remains of her doughter represented by a dolly. At the same time the mother brings a flask of wine with her, helping other mothers with their worries. All this leads to such an unusual festival you'll remember all life long. During the night of the same day, people dress up in white and go around the town looking for "Gioldzi" and calling aloud his name. "Gioldzi" is a puppet representing the Carnival that gets burned at some point in the night. This event also brings people drinking and laughing together. Both in the morning and in the evening sexual symbols are always involved although in a joyful and happy way...
