Each year, on the Monday after Pentecost, the statue of Nostra Signora d’Itria is carried in procession from the parish church of Nureci to the rural sanctuary of the town, which are both dedicated to Santa Barbara. The statue, placed on a cart pulled by oxen, is accompanied by a large group of people and local folk groups.
The following day, after the religious rites at the church, the civil celebrations begin. The activities include traditional dances and songs, children's shows, and concerts.
The festival ends with a procession that accompanies the statue of Nostra Signora d’Itria back to the parish church.
