The Houses of Baroque Valletta 1650-1750 by Mevrick Spiteri is a new exciting publication about houses in Valletta under the Knights of St John. The new book is the result of an in-depth and interdisciplinary study and brings to light new aspects on the reshaping of Valletta’s urban space by delving into property transformation, social attitudes and economic concepts. At the core of this study is the importance of research through which one better understands the historic and cultural values of Malta’s capital city, which despite its enduring association with Renaissance ideal patterns, fully echoes the social and cultural realities of this world.
The new book published by Midsea Books in collaboration with the International Institute for Baroque Studies, University of Malta and the National Archives of Malta will be launched on Thursday 25th November 2021 at the National Library of Malta in Valletta. The launch will be held in Maltese. Due to Covid restrictions attendance will be limited to invitations.
