Alfredo Cassano illustrated a series of commonly used cultural hand gestures straight from Italy. The country and culture where gestures are used to communicate effectively can also be taken humorously -- such as "I don't care," "If I catch you," and "You didn't fool me."

Cultural hand gestures vary from region to region; however, Italians are notorious for their colorful signs regardless of their moods. Whether they are happy, sad or downright pissed off, hand gestures are able to convey a stronger message with their charismatic medium.
