A Baroque building in Valletta is set to become a veritable literary palace after the National Book Council announced plans to restore the building and turn it into a Maltese museum of literature.

Mark Camilleri, the executive chairman of the National Book Council, said that the Council wants to turn the building, which is currently in a state of disrepair, into another “magnificent addition to Valletta’s astonishing architecture”.

“This project will be one of government’s most important milestones in the cultural and education sectors,” Mr Camilleri told Lovin Malta. “We’ve got a majestic palace in a very worn out condition, and we will be restoring the palace to its former glory.”

“The idea is for the palace to be an outlet for Malta’s publishing industry, a home for the National Book Council, and publishers and authors,” he continues. “We will lease part of the building for a bookshop which will act as a cultural and marketing agents, and we will also have a museum of literature.”

Here’s a glimpse into the Palace as it stands today
