A while ago I wrote a Blog, as best as my American mind could, concerning some common Italian phrases. Now I'd like to give you guys some of those fancy hand gestures that you might see in a conversation between Italians.
The first video above and the second are my favorite of the bunch. This bella donna Nada, along with her family and friends, made this nice batch of gestures and phrases that I'd like to share with you guys. And because Nada is probably the cutest girl I've every seen. Ho una cotta per Nada.(Google Translate Here)
This second video from Nada and her friends and family has a whole bunch of phrases, all pronounced by native Italian speakers. So remember to roll those Rs and put some music into your mouths if you want to sound like an Italian.
[Note: These was shot in Siena, meaning some of the gestures maybe be indigenous to the city or the Tuscan region in general. Many cities or regions may have their own gestures as well as their own words. All in all, some of these may not apply outside of Siena or Tuscany. Or, these may be from outside of Siena entirely.]
This last video has some of the dirty phrases along with the gestures, like "What the f**k do you want?" and some others.
Remember, some might disagree with the meanings of some of these gestures. It's best to ask an Italian friend before you start flailing your hands around like a pagliaccio. (Google Translate here)
Anyone disagree with some of these or know of any other good gestures or phrases?
@WhenHateIsTheOnlyOption@xanga - hmmm I don't think there's a hand gesture for that...except for the "international medium finger sign"...I can't think anything else....the word it's quite strong by itself..no need to add some hand gestures :P
