Italian gestures

Ok, wait a minute. When i go in other countries people starts speaking to me with gestures, A LOT. WTF do you really think that italians speak all the day with gestures like idiots? And what should we say about russians and americans? They are crazy, not italians. And i won't speak about english people and their damn tea. Oh, and yes, well, it's true, thath we speak with gestures all the day ))




(ps: can you tell me if i made some english mistake here?)

C'mon man, flailing your arms around is 90% of Italian.

In fact I cannot hold my hands while speaking. I am like this but many of us here are don't do that. I don't like stereotypes, either on gestures or anything else.

Being Italian means that people expect you to be grown in a big, traditional family, living together with our cattle, eating food directly from the ground, and being apart of some deep, ancient secrets of life. That is not true. Many of us grew up in sterile apartments, eating Nutella in front of a TV screen and, no, we don't know the secret of happiness! Neither in Northern nor in Southern Italy. That's just a stereotype. Italy is a Babylon!

Grande, Armando! Sometimes I feel like the world wants us to be just pizza, mandolino and pavarotti, like: "Oh, there's an Italian, make us laugh! No, no, stop talking about serious things, just flirt and make jokes, you are Italian!"

May be some Italians speak louder than others.Almost all latins speak loud and make gestures. My country,Uruguay,is a good example.


Please remamber,you must write " I" always with capital letter. And you should not use WT... here.

Best wishes!

Anyway I wrote too much but missing the central point: your writing style is cool, Armando! In my opinion, it's like there's energy in it, and I had fun reading. That's what made me feel like posting here. Ciao!
