Maurice Caruana Curran: Guardian of Heritage and Justice (1918 – 2018),
Din l-Art Ħelwa, 352 pages.

This handsome Limited Edition is made up of some 32 articles written by some of Malta’s leading thinkers, legal and literary experts and many close to Judge Maurice Caruana Curran, our Founder President, on the 100th Anniversary of his birth. Launched last year, it has become an essential part of Melitensia collections and makes a most rewarding read for lovers of Malta’s cultural heritage and for lovers of the law. It recounts Maurice’s historic struggle to ensure that the right of the individual in Malta was safeguarded and protected, and of course it tells the story of the birth of Din l-Art Ħelwa in 1965 written by those who were there and remember it. There are many personal and humerous anecdotes about the ‘Acting Judge’ as he was lovingly known in the law courts and touching accounts of his personal and family life and is illustrated with photos from family and Din l-Art Ħelwa archives which span the long productive life of our Founder.
Normally retailed at €45 euros, it is being offered to Din l-Art Ħelwa subscribers at €25 till the 10th January 2020.

This beautiful illustrated publication, dedicated to future generations, was written to mark the 50th Anniversary of the organisation in 2015. It makes a gift that will adorn any house and has taken its rightful place within collections of Melitensia. It tells the remarkable story of Din l-Art Ħelwa, our volunteer national trust, founded in 1965 to safeguard Malta’s rich heritage from the perils of neglect and fast urban development. Spanning the work of five decades from the early years when conservation was still in its infancy, this book describes the unique historic monuments and landmarks saved through restoration by the organisation and the challenges faced by its volunteers. It is a story about heritage saved by sheer determination, example and commitment.
