President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca presided over the launch of ‘San Anton Palace 360o’ by Miranda Publishers, at San Anton Palace.
‘San Anton Palace 360o’ is written by architect William Soler with photographs by Enrico Formica and is being sold in aid of the Emanuele Cancer Research Foundation Malta, launched in October 2017. The foundation is a joint initiative by The President’s Trust, Fondazione Terzo Pilastro Internazionale and the University of Malta.
President Coleiro Preca said that San Anton Palace is evidence of the many layers of our nation’s history and is a clear example of our complex identity as the people of Malta, adding that it contains elements of Baroque, British, and more contemporary styles united in a way that symbolises the unique synthesis of these influences within our Maltese culture.
The President thanked William Soler and Miranda Publishers for working together to create this new publication which will enthral those who will purchase it. The President also thanked Prof. Avv. Emmanuele F.M. Emanuele di Villabianca, Barone di Culcasi, President of Fondazione Terzo Pilastro Internazionale, and Prof Paolo Catalfamo, Chairman of GlobalCapital plc for their contribution to make this book a reality.
