In Casentino there’s a strong tradition for the ‘ruzzola’ sport. It consists in a street game – today an official sport – with very ancient origins and is played also in Emilia Romagna Abruzzo, Marche, Umbria, Lazio and Calabria.

The game is still practiced by locals who divide themselves in two teams and compete by throwing large whole cheeses along the road.

In Casentino, to play the ‘ruzzola’ game, you can go next to the football ground in Poppi, where there’s an official track.
