The carnival of Ottana takes place in Sardinia, Italy, and has its roots in peasant culture. Derived from a mediterranean neolithic cult of farming and fertility, the core character and originality of this event has been maintained due to the region’s long history of isolation. Carnival participants wear masks and costumes, each resembling a different farm animal and some representing the struggle between animal instinct and human reason.
