Italians are famous for speaking with their hands, but the gestures employed in everyday communication can often be difficult to understand for people of other nationalities. In some cases they can even be completely misunderstood where similar gestures are used in other cultures but with different connotations.
This gesticulation is a common form of non-verbal communication in Italy and is a specific characteristic of Italian culture, yet it is often overlooked in textbooks of Italian as a foreign language. This book aims to bridge that gap and to deepen students' understanding of this functional and cultural element of the Italian language, within the context of more general non-verbal communication including the role of interpersonal distance, clothing, and the subject of the communication between Italians and people of other cultures.
The book, complete with exercises and activities, makes use of 170 online videos, and covers Beginners - Advanced level Italian (CEFR A1-C1).
