Did you know, that holding the fingers in a pear shaped configuration and moving hands slightly up and down is a gesture to slow down or wait, in the UAE culture?
Correct me if I’m wrong, but in other cultures this gesture has a very different meaning. In Argentine it means “why??” or “what??”, used when the listener can not believe what someone is saying.
As I know the Italian meaning is a slightly different from the Argentinian one.
Do you know the exact meaning of this gesture in the Italian culture?
