Event Details

Born in Malta to Italian parents fleeing from Bourbon Naples, Giuseppe Calì came to dominate Maltese Art between 1880 and 1920. A virtuoso by birth, he was hugely gifted with a talent for inventiveness, expressiveness and narrative, and, above all, speed of execution.

A masterclass organised by Heritage Malta in collaboration with the University of Malta’s Department of Art and Art History, delivered by Dr Mark Sagona on the 1st of December at MUŻA, will be discussing the evolution of Calì’s art.

Admission is free of charge, but reservation is required at any Heritage Malta museum or site, or by sending an email with your details on

All attendees must wear a face mask and respect social distancing measures.
