Sardinian custom of Ulassai resumed during the paraded one of Sardinian customs that precedes the processione in honor to S.Antioco patron of omonimo the country of the Sulcis.
Sant'Antioco is a the name of both an island and a municipality (comune) in southwestern Sardinia, in the Province of Carbonia-Iglesias, in Sulcis zone. With a population of 11,730, the municipality of Sant'Antioco it is the island's largest community. It is also the site of ancient Sulci, considered the second city of Sardinia in antiquity.
Saint Antiochus of Sulcis was an early Christian martyr of Sardinia. The island and town of Sant'Antioco are named after him. He is a figure associated with the Sardinian mines from which the Romans extracted minerals and precious metals; the Romans condemned prisoners of war and Christians to work these mines.
Antiochus' legend states that he was condemned to work the mines on the island that now bears his name. The island, at the time inhospitable and isolated, was named Plumbaria at the time, after its source of lead (plumbum). His legend also states that he was a physician during the reign of Hadrian. He had converted many people in Cappadocia and Galatia to the Christian religion, and was therefore tortured and sent into exile by the authorities. Antiochus, however, converted his jailer Cyriacus at Sardinia, and had built a small underground oratory on Plumbaria, and was thus condemned to death there.

Un ritratto coi fiocchi, che conferma la giÓ tua verificata bravura in questo genere. Noto anche che ti sei deciso a mettere le note in inglese, bene!
