Ohně svatého Antonia – Gadoni

According to legend, he stole St. Anthony took a spark from the Underworld and gave it to humanity on Earth, which at that time was plagued by freezing temperatures, thus bringing them the light and warmth needed for the sustenance of nations. For this reason, on the night between January 16 and 17, many communities in Sardinia and beyond celebrate this centuries-old tradition with a feast in his honor. The symbol of the celebration is precisely the fire, the element of conjunction between the sacred and the secular, around which the inhabitants of the cities gather and exchange wine and food prepared for the occasion.
