2018 Carnival in Arzachena
From 8 to 18 February Arzachena celebrates the carnival.
The parades. Three parades of allegorical floats and masked groups go on Sunday 11 and Tuesday 13 in the city center and, Grand finale, Sunday, February 18 in the village of Cannigione for the popular feast of Piñata on the sea. The parades leave at 14.30.
The carnival recipes. The 2018 programme reinforces the most typical events of the Arzachena Carnival. Those with the local culinary tradition are always very expected.
The fava, or Fai and Laldu in the Gallura dialect, is the classic inaugural moment expected for the day of fat Thursday, this year in the calendar on 8 February.
Fai and Laldu is a classic and genuine recipe with an intense flavour based on fava beans, pork and stewed lard. Prepared live, it is served in Piazza Risorgimento from 12.30. But this is only one of the goodness of Arzachena’s extraordinary cookbook. Each time of the year offers a different, sweet or savoury specialty. It’s worth tasting them all at least once in your life.
These include Li Frisgioli Longhi, the sweet par excellence of Carnival. Not to be missed!
Nights In music.
At the end of the parades it is obligatory to taste pancakes. It is the task of the carnival groups to serve them in structure set up in Corracilvuna locality. (next to the Stadio Biagio Pirina.
