Hola, salut, ciao, hello

De Eugenia Perella
Illustrated by Lucilla Tubaro

Did you know that there are many ways to greet each other in the world? Do you live in the country where kisses multiply? Or the one where they rub their noses to smell each other? Or where they stick out their tongue naturally? There are amazing customs that are thousands of years old and last over time. Others have a very spiritual meaning. There are also rituals that have become so popular that they are universal. On this journey around the world of greetings we explore some wonderful cultures, languages ​​and legacies that allow us to maintain our identity and connect as a community. Because with each gesture and word, in whatever language, we weave infinite bonds so that the art of greetings endures. How do you greet? Or how would you like to be able to do it?
