SaSSari’s Candelieri

The main figures of the Descent of the Candelieri are the obrieri (those responsible for carrying the standard), bearers, guardian Father, and then the eleven gremi, the mayor, the mace bearers and many others. The Descent of the Candelieri is a very engaging celebration and its protagonists perform clearly defined roles. The people who attend the parade, whether citizens of Sassari or tourists, are not just onlookers; they are really moved by the passion generated by an event that goes back many centuries.
