Description

Maltese Social Studies Series No. 30

An in-depth and brilliant study about building transformations, civil appropriations, and urban reformations in Valletta in the Early Modern Period. As Mevrick Spiteri states in his preface, there is an urgent need to formulate new strategies in heritage preservation by drifting away from the dictatorship of ‘Outstanding Universal Values’ when dealing with iconic cities such as Malta’s capital.

Spiteri’s book illustrates that Malta’s capital, despite its enduring association with Renaissance ideal patterns, fully echoes the social and cultural realities of this world.

This book is a precious guideline to re-evaluate current heritage practices.
