Roland Sila, librarian and Germanist, and Ottilia Winkler, staff member in the cash desk/reception area, deal with Italy as a place of longing for travellers.

The focus is on the painting by the Tyrolean artist Franz Richard Unterberger “Amalfi” from 1893, with which the artist immortalised the coast south of Naples. It is juxtaposed with photographs by the photographer Giorgio Sommer, who was active in Naples. He photographed the Amalfi coast almost at the same time, and his photos are now among the “icons” of Italian photography. But he was also active in Tyrol and thus underlined the equally existing longing of the people for the mountain world.

In the event series “Change of Perspective”, two people from different disciplines talk about one object. The different perspectives show how variously an object can be interpreted and produce remarkable stories and surprising connections – a multidimensional and interdisciplinary experience of selected objects.
