Description

An exhibition catalogue accompanying an exhibition with the same title, hosted under the patronage of the President of Malta in 2015, as part of the national festivities commemorating the 450th anniversary of the Great Siege of 1565. It presents this epic saga, with a fresh study of the protagonists to interpret the events, which marks our national identity up until today. It includes full-colour illustrations of the various exhibits, both local and from foreign institutions, which include original correspondences, fire arms used by corsairs, the eight-pointed cross worn by Grand Master Jean de Valette, several parts of decorated armoury (brought together for the first time after 200 years), and the helmet of Emperor Charles V, to mention a few of the over 150 objects exhibited.
