Sunday May 01, 2016

The protagonists

The Archconfraternity

The Archconfraternity is one of the oldest lay and popular associations in Cagliari, created with a papal bull by Paul III in 1539. Its head-quarter was and still is Saint Efisio's church in the quarter of Stampace Bassa. There are 150 members divided into two categories: men and women.
The Guardianìa and the Third Guardian

The members of the "Guardianìa" are called from the people "Is Dottoris" (the doctors) because in the past all of them were the notables of the city. Their role is to protect the Saint. The Terzo Guardiano (Third Guardian) is the representative of the feast and the responsible for its organisation.
The Alter Nos

The Alter Nos is the representative of the town authority and during the ceremonies, he represents the public thanking to the Saint. He often is a town councillor delegated by the mayor. He always wears the Toson D'Oro, a medal made of solid gold given by Charles II, King of Sardinia and Aragon.
