GESTIVALS Vittorio Gassman (1 September 1922 - 29 June 2000) performs the interpretation of theatrical gestures or "tragic attitudes" (Morrocchesi): sitting on the contrary on a chair, hands and arms on top in the act of throwing something, look from below at the top, feet well supported on the ground. Possible meaning: launch of an insult, disappointment, disapproval. 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.
