  • Italians are renowned for their ability to express themselves through gestures and body language, an additional layer of meaning that enriches their informal conversations, their greetings, and even their official speeches. This film aims to create a deeper understanding of this surprising form of communication. The narrative of the film originates from an old legend found amongst the notes of renowned Italian folklorist Giuseppe Pitrè, and it focuses in particular on the non-verbal communication strategies enacted by the Sicilians, masters of the art of "speaking with the body."
