With its special exhibition “Sie wünschen? Desidera?” – What would you like? – the South Tyrolean Museum of Tourism is offering visitors a view into both the historical development of the waiting profession and the various life situations and duties of the serving staff. At the forefront of the exhibition is the difficult relationship that waiters and waitresses have with their guests, with particular attention paid to the communication between those serving and those being served.
The exhibition takes this as its point of departure, presenting content not – as is so often the case – by means of long text displays, but rather in the form of film projections.
On the menu are stories from the inner life of the service profession, garnished with numerous historical objects. The intention is to draw visitors’ attention to the role of the waiter in the catering trade.
