Italian Gestures: Part 1

Earlier this year, I shared some humorous illustrations of italian hand gestures.  Well, I came across an interesting site that has more tutorials that can come in handy when traveling to Italia.  Please enjoy the images with their information.  I will provide the next  four lessons daily. Ciao!
