Bonfires rage throughout Mamoiada for two nights starting on 16 January as half-human, half-animal mamuthones parade through the streets – clad in sheepskins and shaking heavy bells – accompanied by white-masked, red-jacketed issohadores who go about town lassoing young women. This is one of Sardinia's most characteristic festivals, with deep pagan roots.
