Ruttosound – Italy’s burpfest

Burping is a socially unacceptable habit in many cultures. But each year, crowds flock to the Italian town of Reggiolo, to listen to belching in all its myriad forms. It’s a competition called Ruttosound, part of an annual beer festival – and for a good cause with contestants clearing their oesophagus’ to raise money for charity. I took a deep breath and checked it out.
