Italian Cutural Week: La voce del corpo - 31th Oct 2019

This event has been organized by the Italian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, with the support and the collaboration of the University of Malaya and the Italian Division with the aim of promoting the study and the dissemination of the Italian language and culture.

This year the topic was "La voce del corpo", an interactive and entertaining workshop to get to know non-verbal communication through stereotypes, language and culture.
Gestures, facial expressions, body distance, in other words non-verbal communication: Mr Luca Vullo, actor, movie director and expert of Italian body language has entertained the audience in a fun yet instructive workshop on Italian body language.
Luca has given many examples of the key role of non verbal communication in human relationships.
Italians are famous for their body language, but each culture has got its own code of non verbal communication, a sort of grammar which must be studied and understood if we want to communicate effectively and understand different cultures.
Among the audience students of Italian, French, linguistics, members of the staff and guests, who have been actively involved in the workshop, trying out gestures and making cross cultural comparisons.
Thanks Luca!

Luca Vullo and our students... in action!
