SAVOIR FAIRE, TALKING BODIES


A photograph by Enzo Sellerio shows four men next to a tree, in the piazza of a Sicilian town. What are they saying? Nothing. However, their bodies are talking. They do not transfer information, but confirm their male identity. "Saperci fare" (savoir faire, that is the knowledge of the world, is a term which describes that mastery which is the contrary of spontaneity – gestures, postures, attitudes so to give a "real" shape to our bodies.
