Hall ECostumes

this room has three women's costumes and one male's. The costume represents the most original and socially signficant aspect of the "desulese" community. Their main colours - black, brown, red, indicated different conditions as for example normal daily life, widowhood and heavy familiar mourning, but also the persoanl and social condition lived in that moment. The male's costume, even if particular, does not differ much from the other traditional Sardinian costumes.
