Description The Italian writer, Grazia Deledda (Nuoro 1871 – Rome 1936), awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1926, describes the atmosphere of her native Sardinia as well as the way of living of its inhabitants at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. One of the typical motifs about which she narrates in her prose are traditional religious processions. Her descriptions of these processions are interesting from both the historical and ethnographic points of view, however, their importance is also symbolic, psychological as well as religious. Our analysis deals with the procession motif in her novels Elias Portolu, Canne al vento (Reeds in the Wind) and Cosima.
