Newly opened in December 2018 in Valletta, the MUZA Art gallery has over 20,000 works of art to discover. It is a national-community museum, the first of its kind in the world. Curator Dr Alexander Debono believes that MUZA “bridges the idea of a nation with the needs of the community”.
For example, the museum features a series of galleries dedicated to Maltese culture throughout history. Other exhibits centre on both Maltese and Italian paintings and sculpture, establishing Valletta as a prominent arts city.
The museum is situated in one of Valletta’s most well-established buildings, the Auberge d’Italie, a 16thcentury mansion that was originally built for the Italian-speaking knights of St John. The museum is worth visiting for the impressive architecture of the building alone.
