Malta Image Preservation Archive

The Malta Image Preservation Archive (MIPA). Preserving photographic and architectural cultural heritage of the Maltese Islands. The Melita Foundation is supporting MIPA by helping it upgrade photographic camera equipment and lighting that is required to digitize 150-year-old photographic glass plate and film negatives.

MIPA provides high-resolution digital material to the general population, the National Archives of Malta and the University of Malta. The digital material will be made available for research purposes as well as to the general public, thus ensuring that this fragile material is preserved together with the valuable aspects of Maltese architectural and photographic history.
