Prolagus commented on the word filonzana
Being Sardinians less than 2,000,000, we never really felt the need for hiring three Moirae.Anyway, (after a Wikipedia search, I can say that) her role is close to both Clotho and Atropos.

Is she closer to Clotho, Lachesis, or Atropos? Most cultures seem to need three crones for this job (e.g. the Moirae, the Parcae, the Norns).

So that's who's weaving my destiny. I need to speak with her.
Sa filonzana ("the weaver") is the personification of Fate. The thread she weaves is everyone's destiny. She's humpbacked and always wears a mask.Traditionally, she follows Sardinian carnival parades.
