The Angel of Punishment Exhibition by Eric Leone

17 May 2017


The University of Malta Library, in collaboration with Eric Leone (BFA in Digital Arts student in his final year) is organising exhibition entitled “The Angel of Punishment”.

“The Angel of Punishment” is Eric Leone’s final year project which aims to determine the important elements of contemporary character design, with special regard to gaming. 

The exhibition includes character design sketches and prints for a set of characters, which are based on stereotypical narrative roles. This practice is done within an ‘Open World Action Adventure’ game concept, which serves as a matrix for the characters and the narrative they serve.

The exhibition will be held between 22 and 26 May 2017 at the Library Foyer and it will be open to the public during Library opening hours.

Dr Roger Vella Bonavita visits the Library

17 Apr 2017

During his stay in Malta, the historian Dr Roger Vella Bonavita paid a visit to the Department of Archives & Special Collections at the UM Library to view the "Bonavita Papers".

This collection of papers represents the family archive of the Bonavitas - an old and distinguished Maltese family of long standing. Apart from recording everyday life, the archive also serves to shed light on Maltese social, economic, legal and political history most particularly during the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Special Collections manager Mary Samut-Tagliaferro showed Dr Vella Bonavita round the collection and explained the work currently being carried out by herself and her colleague Matthias Ebejer to rehouse the collection prior to relaunching it with an exhibition of some choice works from the collection. The exhibition will be held at Valletta Campus Library and is being timed to coincide with V18.

Dr Vella Bonavita also paid a brief visit to the Melitensia Department where at his behest he was shown a copy of his doctorate thesis entitled: "A gentleman of Cortona: the life and achievement of Capitano Francesco Laparelli da Cortona (1521-1570)".

The Archives & Special Collections Department who hosted Dr Vella Bonavita hopes that this will be the first of many visits to the Library.
