Bocce (or Bocci, or Boccie)
Explanation:
Bocce (or Bocci, or Boccie) is a precision sport closely related to bowls and pétanque with a common ancestry from ancient games played in the Roman Empire. Developed into its present form in Italy, it is played around Europe and also in overseas countries that have received Italian migrants, including Australia, North America and South America (where it is known as bochas), initially amongst the migrants themselves but slowly becoming more popular with their descendants and the wider community. The game is also well-known in former Yugoslavia (boćanje).
