Abstract: Melchiorre Cafa’ must be counted as one of the most talented Maltese artists of the 17th century, honoured to have been recognised as a great sculpror by the brilliant Gianlorenzo Bernini himself, who worked in Rome as his contemporary. This volume is a worthy tribute to an artist of exceptional talent. It is the first full-scale study dedicated to this artist, well-illustrated and finely produced, edited by Keith Sciberras of the University of Malta with contributions by an eminent group of international scholars working in the field of Baroque art.
Description: This document contains information with regard to art heritage activities in Malta and Europe, including conferences, seminars, exhibitions and lectures. In addition, a list of recent theses by students presented to the International Institute for Baroque Studies is outlined (pp. 19-20).
