364th FEAST OF SAINT EFISIO

from May 01, 2020 to May 03, 2020

Photo exhibition "Saint Efisio only"

On the occasion of the 364th fulfilment of the solemn vow to Saint Efisio, which will see Cagliari deprived of its traditional feast, the May Mask Cultural Association, with the support of the Municipality of Cagliari and the Archconfraternity of the Gonfalone of Sant 'Efisio Martire, will try to fill this void by proposing on his Facebook page a virtual photo exhibition by Alessandro Spiga. The project consists of 35 photos from the vast archive of the photographer, all printed with the ancient photographic printing process of cyanotype on a precious Canson paper. The images are divided into four sections:

1- the Saint
2- the devotees
3- the Archconfraternity of the Gonfalone of Sant'Efisio Martire
4- the Municipality of Cagliari
 
The title Saint Efisio only comes from the aim of Alessandro Spiga to put the focus on the Saint, beyond the folkloristic side of the feast, emphasizing the solemn procession to the martyrdom's place that this year the Saint will make alone.
The event has been organized as an usual photo exhibition in order to get back to a bit of normality.
This initiative aims to give Cagliari and the whole Sardinia an opportunity to meet their beloved saint and a virtual exhibition that will be available and accessible from every corner of the world.

The virtual exhibition will be inaugurated on Friday, 1 May on the May Mask Facebook page:
