Palazzo De La Salle
Is a storehouse of memory in its own right and it preserves traces of Malta’s historical, political and cultural changes within its walls. Its archives, dating back to the mid eighteen-fifties, bear witness to this legacy. The archives house a wealth of information and the recent history of the Maltese Islands may be read in between the lines of each handwritten letter, minute, annual report and announcement in its possession. The publication situates the story of the building and Society of Arts within specific narratives, while at the same time contextualising it within the overarching story of the Maltese Islands. In this way it considers the past whilst keeping an eye to the future.
