There are different ways of being diplomatic. In the same way as verbal communication, non-verbal communication presupposes the presence of two or more interlocutors. Etymologically, the word diplomacy is of Greek origin, formed by the words “diplo” which means “doubled in two” and the suffix “-ma” which expresses “the result of an action”. An essential tool of diplomacy is negotiation. In the interaction between two different bodies, there is a need to find a common territory, a sort of “meeting point”. Body diplomacy is closely related to the words “tact” and “finesse”. “Dress up diplomacy” arises from the need to investigate the skill of shrewdness, caution, circumspection and finesse, in an intertwined process of discovering the other.
