rolling of the cheese

My love for Italy seems to grow each time I find out more about their celebrations. During Easter every year masses of people congregate in Pasquetta, for The Ruzzolone (the rolling of the cheese). Instead of egg hunts, they roll nine pound rounds of Pecornio cheese down the streets. Completely fabulous!

PS. Fun Easter posts coming up from our weekend mini-celebration.
