Being a good butler means having to deal with everything from supervising table settings to hosting a reception on a yacht and making a perfect Margarita. In Milan, Italy, the Italian Association of Butlers is running a basic course of etiquette and wardrobe service. It will be held in late April and May 2012, over the course of two weekends.
The subject areas include etiquette, table manners, suitcase management, wardrobe management and housekeeping.
The Associazione Italiana Maggiordomi is an organization dedicated to promoting the butler as a specialist professional. An area that is expanding, with a growing demand from private homes, luxury hotels and private yachts.
