Rolling the cheese

In Italy in Umbria they are celebrating on Easter Monday,  the festival of Ruzzolone, which means “rolling the cheese.” This festival has been around since ancient times and where a 5kg wheel of Pecorino cheese is launched along the road via a leather strap and the winner is to reach the finish line with least number of strokes!
