This knight game has been held for over 500 years in Oristano, Sardinia. The multi-year collaboration between the Sinj and Sartiglia was strengthened in 2014 when they signed a partnership. After that, the knights from Sardinia presented themselves in Sinj during the Alka ceremonies, together with numerous historical units from Croatia. Along with the members of the VAD in Sardinia, representatives of the “Race to the Ring” in Barban will also participate.
