February 24, 2019 – At the invitation of the I’Mamutzones de Samugheo – Ethnic Cultural Group, on February 16 and 17, members of the Carnival Association “Didi s Kamešnice” – Gljev participated in the carnival parties of Oristano and Samugheo in Sardinia.


As part of the carnival festivities, Inland Dalmatian Carnival Association “Didi s Kamešnice” – Gljev, presented the carnival customs of the villages below the Kamešnica mountain on two significant events in Sardinia.

The visit is the result of seven years of close collaboration between the Alka Knights Society and members of Sa Sartiglia from Oristano, who happily visit one another each year for the Sinj Alka and Sartiglia, one of the last Medieval games with knights and horses in the Mediterranean region. 


To further exchange traditions and cultural heritage, at the event “Aspettando la Sartiglia” in the city of Oristano, the carnival association “Didi s Kamešnice – Gljev” participated and presented a segment of Inland Dalmatia’s rich intangible cultural heritage of the carnival customs of the villages below the Kamešnica mountain, which are on the list of non-material cultural assets of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.



The second presentation of the “Didi” was in front of 30,000 curious viewers at the 24th carnival “Su Carrasegare Antigu Samughes” in Samugheo, Province of Oristano, Sardinia.

The kind hosts organized a vibrant and exciting cultural and entertainment program including numerous carnival groups from all over Italy, and the performance of our ”Didi” did not leave anyone indifferent. 


This tour of the carnival association was a great way of promoting the rich tradition and customs of the City of Sinj and the Cetinje region while exchanging knowledge and possibilities for enriching the tourist offer. 



The visit to Sardinia, realized with the valuable support of the Ministry of Culture, the Split-Dalmatia County, the City of Sinj, the Tourist Board of the City of Sinj and Don Josip Dukić, is the basis for further cultural exchanges between Oristano and Samugheo on one side and Sinj and Gljev on the other.
