The Cheese of Gambatesa

In the old days people used to hang rounds of cheese to dry and aged the cheese in their bedroom cupboards, as some older people in Gambatesa still do.  In the photographs the cheese hangs behind a partly raised shutter and partly opened window.  [Il formaggio gambatesano.]
