GESTI Vittorio Gassman (September 1, 1922 - June 29, 2000) performs the interpretation of theatrical gestures or "tragic attitudes" (Morrocchesi): sitting backwards on a chair, elbows resting on the back, right hand resting on the chin, two fingers in the mouth like biting nails, raised eyebrows. Possible meaning: evaluation of a problem. With other actors he participated in the world survey on the value of the gesture in human culture promoted by UNESCO at the V International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences held in Philadelphia in 1956, and that for Italy was conducted by dr. Romano Calisi and by Ando Gilardi. Later the director of the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions of Rome, prof. Tullio Tentori, understanding the value of research, joined the group as a conservative and archivist. (scanned print at the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions of Rome) The investigation was transformed into an exhibition. Photograph by Ando Gilardi (1921-2012), #andogilardi Rome 1958
