Many books have been written about the Maltese Islands, their history and strategic location at the centre of the Mediterranean, but AT HOME IN MALTA explores, for the first time, what it is like to live on the islands today and what Maltese homes and gardens look like, spotlighting the idiosyncratic styles that encompass a glorious variation in taste, decor, approach and inheritance. The book captures the Maltese way of life.
The rich collection of photographs records the Palaces of the Nation inherited from the days of the Knights, as well as the true nature of the islands’, often surprising, countryside. There are Neolithic temples, beaches, rugged cliffs and a rocky coastline, churches, the festa and an affection for St Paul who was shipwrecked here in 60AD. It is these that give the islands their uniqueness and the Maltese nation its own individuality.
The wealth of this authoritative overview makes this the most exciting work about Maltese homes and life on the Maltese Islands and what it is that makes them so remarkable.
