HERITAGE SAVED – DIN L-ART ĦELWA 1965-2015, by Stanley Farrugia Randon
This is the remarkable story of Din l-Art Ħelwa, Malta’s 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. Read about heritage saved by sheer determination, example and commitment.
