«According to the anthropologist, Desmond Morris hands are for human beings like a stick for the conductor of an orchestra, with which we direct the rhythm and meaning of words». Using this metaphor I believe that Italians are the best 'orchestra’s conductors' in the world...
...and YES! Of COURSE, WE ARE! If you believe that Italians are well known only for PASTA and PIZZA E MANDOLINO, well, we also love to shake our hands!!
There is a whole world made of gestures and signs that we use to communicate with each other. Lots of hours saved without words...don't you think?
So, if you are wishing to learn a new language but you're not willing to spend hours on boring grammar books... throw them in the air and join me in the quest of the language of Italian gestures! »
