On the 8th of April 2021, the presentation of the book “Giovanni Francesco Abela. Work, private collection and birth of Christian Archaeology in Malta” took place online. The event, hosted by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura of Valletta, allowed for a confrontation between various scholars on the figure of Giovanni Francesco Abela, father of Maltese historiography and Christian archaeology on the island.
A big thank you to the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, the Malta Historical Society and the University of Malta for joining this presentation.
