On the Sunday morning of 3rd June, Wirt iż-Żejtun has organised a group visit to Fort St Angelo right at the start of a restoration project lead by Heritage Malta and partly funded through the European Regional Development Fund.
The group, among whom were members of Wirt iż-Żejtun, were guided by the fort’s curator Mr Matthew Balzan. All started at the Inquisitor’s Palace in Birgu where at the moment there is a temporary exhibition set and aimed at explaining graphically this project. Then the group were taken around the fort, with the curator explaining in detail the highlights of the project.
Those present had the opportunity to give their views and opinion on what is being proposed by Heritage Malta. All those present appreciated the work being done by this national agency to safeguard this historical jewel and the way it is going to be presented to the Maltese people and foreign visitors.
