LANGUAGE
The mantainance of their own language seems to justify this attachment to traditions: almost every village has its own dialect, which is different from the near ones: in Alghero for example they talk Catalan, while in Carloforte, the dialect is more similar to a dialect of Liguria.


CUSTOMES
Also the customes are the result of fashions and uses developped inside the shepherds communities, they are different from one village to another, even if they are only some kilometres away.
You can admire the splendour of these customes during the popular festivals where eveyone seems to have his own life among songs, dances and plays, typically of Sardinia; you can be surprised by the numerous participants, and by the fact that folklore isn’t a theatre, but an intense life.
The female custome has a kerchief on the head, which characterizes the different villages; a linen or cotton shirt, finely bent and adorned by precious sewings: the skirt is long, usually of a dark colour. The apron is really adorned with precoius sewings, also with golden filo. The custome is adorned with spille, earings, golden, silver and coral necklaces and chains.
The male custome is principally constituted by a hut, a shirt closed by some little silver and golden buttons, a wool attire, velvet or brocade, white trousers and a black short skirt.
