The Ardia is a wild ride on horseback made in honor of San Costantino, which takes place every year in Sedilo on the evening of 6 July and is repeated on the morning of 7 and recalls the battle of Ponte Milvio between Constantine and Maxentius.
It’s led by a leader, “sa prima pandela”, followed by two other knights, sa secunda and sa third, and by three escorts representing Constantine and his army. Approximately 100 knights participate each year who, instead, represent the pagans led by Maxentius.
Popular traditions are still very rooted in Sardinian culture today.
The traditional dress expresses the character of a land with a thousand-year history and where it can still be admired worn in all its variations during the great festivals, such as that of Sant’Efisio in Cagliari or the Cavalcata di Sassari.

These traditions are still preserved today and are handed down from generation to generation, making these precious artifacts like a treasure.
