This is an off-colour guide that reveals the contemporary colloquial language Italians actually speak. Nothing is censored in `Dirty Italian`. This book presents cool things to say for all casual situations: shopping, parties, nightclubs, sporting events, and even romance and sex. This completely updated guide even contains fun stuff such as angry words to hurl at the refs during football games at the San Siro Stadium in Milan. The author gives helpful tips for adding emphasis to slang through the body language, gestures, and intonation. You will also learn not-approved-by-nuns sex terminology graphic enough to embarrass the working women walking along Rome's notorious Via Salarias.
