“Su Carrasegare” Beyond the Masks will accompany you in an exciting journey of discovery of the beliefs and rites of pre-Christian Sardinia. You will see powerful images of the archaic masks and costumes still used today during Carnival, su Carrasegare, in the villages of Barbagia. The etymological study of the origin of Sardinian words assists us recapture the long lost meanings associated with these haunting masks, costumes and rituals.
Luca Pisci (1986) has always been fascinated by the mysteries of his native land, Sardinia. He is currently engaged in a major project devoted to Sardinian culture, of which this exhibition is part. (lucapisci.com)
