Rite linked to the beginning of the agricultural year, according to the old tradition, the bonfire of Sant'Antonio is one of the oldest manifestations of popular religiosity, and has as its protagonist, not surprisingly, the Patron Saint of pastoralism and agriculture.

The wish for a good harvest is repeated in the squares of the villages of Sardinia, a large bonfire surrounded by many people, a ritual that coincides with the first outing of the masks of the Sardinian Carnival.
