20 Italian Hand Gestures, Demonstrated by Male Models

Original image

Italians have a large collection of gestures they use while speaking (or in many cases instead of speaking). The gestures convey subtle differences in meaning which can be hard to pick up on. There are plenty of videos out there that will teach you a few of them, but why not learn them from Dolce&Gabbana male models?

Here Elbio, Evandro, Tony and friends will show you the gestures for when something doesn’t make sense, when you want to gossip about a “maybe” couple, when something has gone perfectly, and a bunch of other situations. Remember, the gestures are on their hands—lest you get lost staring soulfully into their eyes.
