Boe di Ottana, Sardinia - More of that weird creepy cultural stuff which I believe celebrates the victory of the islanders over the invading Moors.

Su Componidori [Sa Sartiglia, Oristano, Sardinia] is a sublime figure. At the end of the dressing ceremony, he will have to mount his horse without touching the ground. He is the highest authority charged with the direction of the joust. Once the race track has been reached, he declares the joust started, crossing his sword three times with his Second-in-command. Next, he opens the riding at the star, defying chance for first.

The main star of the Sartiglia is the "Componidori": he wears a heavy androgynous terracotta mask, white shirt, a white veil on his face and a stovepipe black hat. He keeps a bunch of violet in his hand.
