Maciuika, Professor of Art and Architectural History at the City University of New York, Baruch College, USA on the 1st June at the Church of Santa Caterina d’Italia in Valletta at 6.30pm. Organised by the History of Art Department, this public lecture will be addressing the recent trend gaining ground around much of Europe in which destroyed historical buildings are being rebuilt.
