Autumn in Barbagia 2011 – Cortes apertas, this weekend (14-15-16 October) will invite us to Onanì. This small town of Barbagia, counting only 467 inhabitants, is still in close touch with its traditions. And it’s easy to see from the architecture of its buildings, evidence of a rural life still alive, and made more fascinating by The Diego Asproni’s murals which give a note of colour to the landscape made of hills and woods.
These very murals, as the archeological legacy, will be protagonists of Autunno in Barbagia 2011 that will start with a seminary dedicated to Onanì’s art and archeology (Friday 14th, 16.30 pm). The evening of the same day will be committed in dances and music of the town folklore in the frame of the main piazza of Onanì.
On Saturday 15th October will be the time of tasting typical products and of discovering the craftsmanship’s art. A thing not to miss is the production of Onanì traditional cheese made in the old way.
Coming in this town of Sardinia you don’t have to miss furthermore a visit to the San Pietro Church (XII century), other churches frescos, archeological sites of the area, contemporary art sculptures… For all these activities there’re many guided tours (starting from 11.30 am).
Autunno in Barbagia 2011 in Onanì overlaps with the Festa di San Francescangelo celebrations (16th October): a deep-rooted tradition in the town, with religious processions on horseback, dances, music and shows.
Sunday 16th October, 23.00 pm: Onanì celebrations will say goodbye until next edition of Autumno in Barbagia.
