APH - popular Italian gestures by Mezzochan APH - popular Italian gestures by Mezzochan
This is a parody on Alfredo Cassano's "Illustrated guide to Italian popular gestures" [link] , featuring who else but darling little Lovino Vargas / Italia Romano. :D

My apologies for lots of copy-pasta, but I didn't feel like drawing the same thing twelve times in a row...

Hope you can have a good laugh about this.

Dedicated to the wonderful ~Rheney, because she loves Romano (not that I myself wouldn't xD) and also already dedicated two of her deviations to me. (there's more to come for you! <3)

I'd love to put this in my french presentation to explain some vocabulary words, but it's too vulgar lol. It's great, though.

I guess there are regional differences, then... Lots of Italians here on DA commented that this is exactly how they 'talk', and after all the original artwork was made by an Italian artist. It'd be interesting to compare this to the gestures you use, though. :)

:rofl: So epic! I think 'look at this idiot' and 'blah blah' are pretty international. I use those two and go f*** yourself a lot and I'm not even Italian. XD
What does 'mazzate' mean?
Reply
:iconmezzochan:
Mezzochan Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2013  Hobbyist
Oh yes. xD I've seen lots of Germans use the 'look at this idiot' gesture while driving their cars, haha...
I'm not completely sure about the 'mazzate' gesture either, I think it's a gesture of threatening to beat someone... :D

Oh ok. We could always use google and hope for the best. ^^;
