Time: 11:00 am
Venue: Online Event (via MS Teams)
You are invited to a Central Bank of Malta webinar during which Professor William Zammit will deliver a presentation on: An Architectural Jewel Box: Commemorating the 225th Anniversary of the completion of Malta's Bibliotheca.
Situated in the heart of the island’s capital, Malta’s iconic Bibliotheca has a rich history, not only where its architectural aspect is concerned, but also – indeed, especially so – in the varied and extensive collections it hosts. The lecture will delve into both these aspects, outlining the historical development of what was to become the island’s national library, and its deeply-rooted and intricate ties with Maltese and European cultural developments.
Holding the largest collection of published works on the Maltese Islands, the Bibliotheca is also the repository of, among other things, one of the most significant archives on a European level: that of the Hospitallier and Military Order of the Knights of St John.
If you would like to attend you are kindly requested to Register here, in order to fill in the Registration form.

Registration is open until Monday 14 June at 09:00.
