Some of these gestures have the same meaning in Brazil, maybe they were brought by Italian immigrants. 😉\ufeff

NON CAPISCO COME IL RESTO DEL MONDO NON GESTICOLI MENTRE PARLA.\nPoi al sud si gesticola un sacco, ringraziateci che senza i gesti non capireste una ceppa in dialetto.

It feels so weird when you're italian and you realize how many hand gestures you actually do everyday.

Cubans made these hand's movement too,but Cuban movement are similar to Flamenco movement too.Cuba is a Latin culture,Cuba is very similar to Spain and Italy.

I'm from northern Italy and actually some of the gestures you showed mean something different where I live 😂for example the thumb rubbed on the cheek means to be sly and not cool. also I really don't get how other countries don't use some of these gestures, they're so useful 😂

Most of these gestures are quite universal.

Native Americans developed a sophisticated sign language for the same reason Italians developed hand gestures; they lived in multilingual societies. By the way the Chinese have this same problem. Their solution was to develop a writing system based on ideas rather than sound. This means Cantonese speakers and Mandarin speakers can read documents written in traditional Chinese even though those are mutually unintelligible languages.

marco è stupendo! Io insegno italiano agli stranieri, e questo è il video più carino che abbia guardato. E' corto e pregno, per niente palloso. Sarebbe utile anche in italiano, così da poterlo utilizzare nelle lezioni di italiano per stranieri senza dover far la traduzione .. bravo! :)
Valerie Kombucha
Ahahahaha why? Do others not use these gestures?? Damn I thought it was normal lol
Victoria Zandi
Wow! I'm not even full Italian (my nonno is from Sicily) and I use a lot of these gestures without really realizing it! It must just be really easy to pick up subconsciously!

Italian influence in Venezuela is huge !!! basically all those hand movements we make here in Venezuela, the Italian community in Venezuela is very large like the Spanish community. I loved the video I felt very identified, kisses from Venezuela !!
emanueledes7
Most of these gestures are just REGIONAL: Roman and Southern. In Northern Italy, only very few of them are actually used - and if they are used, it's mainly because of Roman/Southern influence from the TV and movies. They are also often seen as quite vulgar, actually.
gabriele siragusa
che poi questa dovrebbe essere una guida alla cultura italiana ma il 90% dei commenti è di italiani che non hanno un cazzo da imparare..(me incluso)
itsEmy
Secondo me la gente non italiana si cofonde sia a parlare mentre gesticola che a guardare noi (che poi non sanno neanche dove guardarci viste le mille gesta😂) fare tutti quei gesti mentre parliamo😂
jdanova elena
Ma quanto ci hai messo a parlare così bene l'inglese?
mariia.cas
Spanish people use like, 80% of these too, on a daily basis ahhahah
mvpmickey1
Italian and Filipino are similar since both wasn't really unified for that long \n...the only thing that made the Philippines into a unified country was the colonist (which already left and gave its independence)\nThe only difference, *Italy had triple the amount of hand gestures than the Philippines* since the colonist made it a rule for everyone to learn one language, culture and religion.\nTo be honest, logically the Philippines was never unified before and after the colonist left.

I'm mediterranean myself and in every single mediterranean countries (Italy, Spain, Greece, Morocco, France, Lebanon, Egypt, Malta etc...) we use our hands a lot (like for saying anything). It's a cultural thing like the over use of olive oil in our food for example ;).

Normalmente non si fanno in silenzio questi gesti. Si dice la cosa che vuoi dire, mentre fai il gesto.
