Fondazzjoni Paulus

Promoting Malta’s cultural and artistic heritage through the revival of past and present Maltese composers. The Melita Foundation is supporting Fondazzjoni Paulus by partly financing the annual Agape Festival 2022 which is organised in collaboration with the Office of The President of Malta.

Through the Agape Festival organised annually by Fondazzjoni Paulus, the foundation promotes music from Malta’s historic archives such as those of the Cathedral and Wignacourt Museums bringing, free to the public, national cultural treasures that would otherwise remain hidden. The festival also offers lectures and guided tours of some of the most cherished heritage sights in Malta, including St. Paul’s Grotto in Rabat and San Pawl Milqi – the largest Roman agricultural villa in Malta.

The 2022 edition of the festival includes an event at Verdala Palace to commemorate Il-Kantilena – the oldest literary text in Maltese. Offered free of charge to the public the festival is accessible to people with different abilities, and broadcast on the national TV station. It benefits local composers that are promoted throughout the events, as well as the public at large, in particular those interested in Malta’s cultural heritage.

Making a difference together

Since starting in 2020, The Melita Foundation has backed many projects run by different groups and backgrounds. From local STEM skills for school kids in the Three Cities to global stuff like planting trees, ESG awareness, teaching maritime law and conservation and ensuring our heritage is well taken care of.
