On the 1st of May ever since 1657 the city of Cagliari has hosted the festival of Sant’Efisio (Ephysius of Sardinia): an extraordinary gathering of islanders through which is fulfilled an ancient vow made by the Municipality to its patron saint”, so begins the book by Antonello Angioni dedicated to the saint, and so the Sant’Efisio celebration, the largest festival in Europe, has been held for 360 years, year after year, almost without interruption. Behind a folk facade there is a different, much more profound side, that you can only discover by participating actively in the vast world that revolves around the worshipping of the martyr, walking for tens of kilometres, meeting people and listening to stories, old and new.
