U Ballu di Diavulu or The Dance of the Devils represents good and evil forces fighting each other, with good guys winning, of course. The figures, dressed as red devils with their heads hidden in masks, parade dancing through the streets and searching for the souls. The yellow figure of death is dancing with them as well until the "angels" put an end to this and subdue the devils.
