They say that a gesture is worth a thousand words, and when it comes to speaking with your hands, the Italians are experts. This quirky handbook of Italian gestures, first published in 1958 by renowned Milanese artist and graphic designer Bruno Munari, will help you understand what a dictionary cannot express. Charming black-and-white photos and wry captions evoke an Italy of days gone by. Speak Italian gives a little hand to anyone who has ever been at a loss for words.
