Description of the event: 
ESN Bergamo collaborated with Aperisegno: people had an "aperitivo" while learning Italian Sign Language (LIS). This was a fun way to discover, know and learn the LIS, giving everyone the opportunity to experience interactions with deaf and normal-hearing people. The Aperisegno community wants to spread the use of LIS through a recreational moment, setting itself the goal of raising awareness and promoting this culture.
