Hand gestures dating

All I had to do was release the miniature drone from my grip and it was instantly airborne.
Ask an Italian to sit on their hands and then tell you a story and they would probably struggle with the concept. Italians have a way of using their hands to add some physical exuberance to an already expressive and passionate language.
So, if you’re planning a trip to Italy and you want to hit it off with the locals, forget your phrase book and check out these handy gestures.
Some are widely used, some are not, and some are just plain rude so be careful when you use them.
Perhaps practice these gestures on your Italian friends first to be sure you’ve got the right movement, otherwise a potentially embarrassing situation could develop.
