Description: The talk focused on Cottonera as a centre of enterprise in the eighteenth century.  In the mid-eighteenth century, 42% Senglean men were away trading or serving in foreign navies.  In 1745-1746, 66% of merchants returning from Spain were from Senglea, Cospicua or Vittoriosa.  In 1791 these towns accounted for 77% of the Maltese in Cadiz, Europe's point of entry for the all-important gold and silver from the Americas.
