A center of the Sarrabus, near the south-eastern coast of Sardinia, known for centuries-old traditions, quality food products and archaeological evidence
Various festivals enliven the Sanvitese summer: at the end of July there is the sagra de sa Prazzira and de sa Pezza de Craba, 'typical pizza' and goat meat, accompanied by folk shows and an exhibition-market of typical products. At the end of August, the sagra de su Pisci, with tasting of roasted fish, and in the village of Cursa a su Coccoi, an equestrian joust in which the speeded riders pierce a typical bread, are staged in San Priamo. At the descents of the knights alternate acrovacies of skilled jockeys. The event includes the donkey prize, a show that mainly involves children. The events of Savi are accompanied by the melodious sound of the launeddas, a policalamo instrument whose origins are lost in time. The Luigi Lai Academy now hands down the use of an ancestral Sarrabese tradition.
