This year it was Mr. Joseph Aquilina’s turn who is a well known silversmith from Zejtun. He was interviewed by Mrs. Fiona Vella, author and PRO of Wirt iz-Zejtun.
During this interview Mr. Aquilina narrated how this trade and art has passed from one generation to another in his family. He explained also the several forms of this trade and the different tools used for particular works. During this interview, Mr. Aquilina made reference to the several works that he made, not only for the Zejtun parish, but also for other parishes.
During this interview there was a reference about the silver works and white metal that are decorating the Good Friday statues of Zejtun.
This activity was dedicated to Mr. Tarcisio Cassar, another silversmith from Zejtun who passed away on 20th March, earlier this year.
